ILP Information
All students in KY. Grades 6-12 complete an individual learning plan (ILP) every year. The ILP is a web-based tool your student uses to start planning a future after high school. They will research careers, investigate colleges, examine military pathways, and set goals they can use to achieve a bright and happy future. They will even start building a resume to apply to colleges or jobs. Throughout this process they learn about the many options they have and what they will need to do to get where they want to go. PARENTS are encouraged to access student ILP’s and review/talk to your youth about their future plans. Parent log-ins can be requested by emailing Mr. Gary at james.gary@franklin.kyschool.us .
