“My Student Learning Plan forced me to write a SMART goal about organization that lead me to find success in my classes and life. I’ll continue to set goals in high school because goals brought me to the success I have now.” “The Student Learning Plan helps me know where I want to go, who I want to be, and how to choose my path.” “This made me feel more sure of myself for the next four years and it helped that I got to plan my four years out.” “I hope we get to update this every year because it was definitely helpful!” “This made me feel better about what I want to do in life…that I can get there and it’s worthwhile for me.” “My parents have more faith in me and there’s a different energy to our relationship.” “No one is going to hold my hand. I know I have to work hard to reach my goals and plans for my future.” “Teachers can help us use the tool to stay focused and stay on track!”

Agenda Making Connections Exploring the Electronic Tool Making it Work
Our country and our business partners demand graduates who are globally aware, financially literate, creative, adaptable and resilient, collaborative, ethical, problem solvers, critical thinkers, and communicators to accommodate the careers in this new day. These graduates will be the most qualified and highly sought after in the world. They will secure the highest paying jobs and stimulate growth and development in the communities they populate. Thomas Friedman 2012
The Student Learning Plan is designed to capture the whole child – social, emotional, intellectual and physical. It is a dynamic process that helps students identify strengths and interests and explore and identify careers that are aligned to those strengths and interests. Students will set academic, career, and personal goals around these explorations in order to build a plan for their future with the strong support of parents, staff and the larger community.
