Individual Pathways Planning, 7-12
What Does it Look Like in the Schools?
Students in Grades 7 to 12 will document evidence of their learning in an Individual Pathway Plan (IPP).
The Individual Pathways Plan
- For students Grades 7 – 12
- Contains evidence of a student’s learning in education and career/life planning
- Compiled by the student with support from the teacher and parents/guardians
- Is the primary planning tool that students use as they proceed through school towards their initial post-secondary destination
- Students will develop their IPP using Xello, an online program.
- Reviewed and revised at least twice yearly
