Personalized Learning Plans

Personal Learning Plans (PLPs) are developed by students in collaboration with teachers, counselors, advisors, and parents as a way to help them achieve short- and long-term learning goals at the middle school and high school levels.

Personal Learning Plans are based on the belief that students will be more motivated to learn, will achieve more in school, and will feel a stronger sense of ownership over their education if they decide what they want to learn, how they are going to learn it, and why they need to learn it to achieve their personal, educational, career, and life goals. The goal of a PLP is to bring greater coherence, focus, and purpose to the decisions students make about their education.(citation)
