Individual Plan of Study

All Kansas students will develop an Individual Plan of Study (IPS) based on their career development and interests. An IPS is both a product a student develops and a process the school implements to guide students in developing future plans. A student's IPS is developed cooperatively between the student, school staff members, and family members.

There are four minimum components of a student's IPS:

  1. A graduated series of strength finders and career interest inventories to help students identify preference towards career clusters

  2. Eighth through Twelfth grade course-builder function with course selections based on career interest

  3. A general postsecondary plan (workforce, military, certification program, two or four year college

  4. A portable electronic portfolio.
