Individualized Learning Plans Sept. 21st & 28th; Oct. 4th & 5th

Project Based Learning

At the start of each school year, learners and their facilitators in TK‐6, in collaboration with parents/guardians, create an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) that includes individual goals (academically aligned to state standards and social/emotional goals). Each learner then has an opportunity to reflect upon and evaluate their progress toward those outcomes, starting at a basic level when they are younger and improving their ability to self‐assess over time.

At the start of each school year, they meet with their facilitator/advisor and their parent to review assessments and set goals. Throughout the year, they meet to look critically at what they have accomplished, reviewing assessment data and examining a portfolio that showcases what they have learned throughout the school year. Your child’s facilitator will email home a signup sheet for you to select the best day and time to meet.
