Best Practices for Personalized Learning Plans

Reach 100% Completion Of Student Personalized Learning Plans.

What is a Personalized Learning Plan or PLP?

Research suggests that students need to understand the relevance of what they are learning as it relates to their future.

Several states have created mandates for similar documentation using terms such as “individualized learning plans” or “academic and career plans”. In order to comply with these mandates, several districts have completed PLP’s on paper and pencil, or used several different technology platforms to gather the required data.

SchooLinks gives students and staff the ability to complete all PLP-related activities in a sequence that helps students understand the relationship between academics and postsecondary opportunities. Districts save time and resources with a convenient reporting dashboard, without the worry of manual data entry or maintaining paper/pen documents.
