Advanced Learning Plans
Advanced Learning Plans are housed in Enrich. ALP goals are aligned with Standards and strength based. Goal writing is a collaborative effort among student, parents, and teachers. ALPs are living documents that reflect current student needs. Students are encouraged to align their ICAP and ALP goals. However, ALP goals must be entered into Enrich in order to count in district percentages. Both academic and affective goals are found in an ALP. ALPs are updated annually.
