BHS Individual Learning Plan

The BHS individual learning plan (ILP) utilizes the website www.waytogori.org students to develop and complete their ILP’s. The ILP is a mapped academic plan and profile that reflect each student's unique set of interests, needs, learning goals, and graduation requirements. The ILP is primarily authored by students themselves with guidance from their teachers, counselor, parents and when applicable, community members. Opportunities exist to revisit ILPs frequently as students choose their high school courses, document outside activities, prepare to meet graduation requirements and generally plan for the future. This process allows students to become active, responsible participants in their educational development and planning. As a working document, the ILP is at the center of a flexible educational program that meets individual development toward America School Counselor Association's (ASCA) National Model for School Counseling Programs, the RI Framework for Comprehensive K-12 School Counseling, and the RI Diploma System's Proficiency-Based Graduation Requirements. Students, in consultation with responsible adults, will establish academic, career, and personal/social goals. In addition, students will develop plans and actions to achieve these goals. This process will ensure that all students are well supported to reach the goal of life readiness.

 

The ILP at BHS is centered around helping students set goals and plan for the future. Our ILP has grade level planning milestones that must be completed each year by the student to complete the ILP process. The planning milestones are as follows
