  • All Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs) will now be written in Infinite Campus (IC), not in Enrich. Please review the videos above under "Advanced Learning Plan Supports" to familiarize yourself (or refresh your memory) with this process. ALSO, WHEN CREATING ACADEMIC GOALS, BE SURE AND NOTE THE ACADEMIC STANDARD THAT IS CONNECTED TO THAT GOAL. There isn't a drop-down menu of Standards in IC so you'll need to have grade level Standards handy when writing these goals.

If you prefer to print out a how-to sheet to use while writing ALPs, use the documents below.
