8 Kentucky Experience

9 Origins of the ILP nIn the 1990’s Kentucky initiated development of IGP nA paper-based career portfolio nDesigned to help students with career and education planning nDevelopment of student IGP’s to be guided by counselors and advisors nIGP viewed as a means to encourage involvement by parents

10 Limitations and Problems with the IGP nIGP folders ordered from KDE totaled only 14% nOnly 20% of parents polled aware of the IGP nPercentage of school’s complying difficult to establish nCompleting plans time consuming for students nSharing plans difficult (often locked in counselor’s filing cabinet) nInvolvement of parents difficult to achieve nMuch of the data required redundant to data captured in the statewide student information system (SIS)

11 Forward with the ILP nDecision reached to issue an RFP for the development of an online version of the IGP – renamed the ILP nKey objectives of the new ILP: –To raise the level of student achievement in middle & secondary school –To increase the percentage of students who enter high school and persist to a diploma –To enable schools to plan for coursework, applied learning experiences, and other activities that respond to the needs of individual learners –To facilitate the advising team approach for students –To increase the percentage of high school graduates who successfully transition to a postsecondary education or training program that is selected based on their unique academic and career interests
