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 .

NEW ACCELERATED READER PROGRAM POLICY for SY 2013-14
Each BMS student will take a Standardized norm reference test at the beginning of the school year to determine his/her Accelerated Reader (AR) reading level and point goal. Reading logs will be kept by each student on a two-sided colored sheet to record student reading both in and out of class.  Teachers and parents will initial the log to verify number of pages read by the student.  Every student must present the reading log with the appropriate documentation of books read on their reading level to their teacher and the librarian before an AR test can be taken. Students should read at least 20 minutes every night as part of their LA homework and turn in their reading logs/nightly reading sheets weekly.   The AR test scores, points earned, and reading logs/nightly reading sheets will count for no more than half of each student’s LA homework grade. Students will be allowed to take AR tests over books they read throughout the summer, but they will still be required to present a signed reading log.  Tests taken by students cannot be removed if low scores are earned. No alternative assignments will be accepted for AR.
