ILP’s: It is a graduation requirement that students complete/update their ILP (Individual Learning Plan) each year. Students are beginning to go to the computer lab with their classes to work on the ILP, but it is good if the student can work on it at home as well. Parents, we encourage you to look at the ILP with your student. If your student doesn’t know their username or password, they can come to the South Office and request that information (please have them try to log in to JCPSOnline first using their normal username and password. They can access CareerCruising directly through JCPSOnline). ILP’s must get to 100% complete each school year.
