The Individual Learning Plan, or ILP, is an online education planning tool that allows students in grades 6-12 to explore careers related to their interests and abilities as well as plan and prepare for their future careers. Additionally, the ILP is a component of the Program Review for Practical Living and Career Studies, part of the new assessment system in Kentucky.
As schools implement the ILP in middle and high schools across Kentucky, many good ideas and creative processes have emerged. This resource includes multiple examples of implementation plans from schools throughout the state.
College and career readiness is the driving force behind Kentucky 2009 Senate Bill 1 which mandated major changes in Kentucky curriculum standards, testing, teacher preparation, and professional development. A key strategy in preparing students for future success is a comprehensive advising program, and includes the full implementation of the Individual Learning Plan (ILP).
The ILP is an online education tool to help students plan their coursework and activities as they prepare for post-secondary education and careers. Students have access to the ILP tool from 6th through 12th grade and beyond. Schools and districts are creating plans and processes to incorporate the ILP into the structure of the school in order to help students complete and fully maximize their ILPs. The ILP is housed on the Kentucky Department of Education web server and is always available to transferring or migratory students. As schools implement the ILP in middle and high schools across Kentucky, many good ideas and creative processes have emerged. No one process or plan will work for all schools, but these examples are available for schools to study and get ideas for ways to better implement the ILP.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
