Personalized Learning Plan (PLP)
A personalized learning plan (or PLP) is developed by students - typically in collaboration with teachers, counselors, and parents—as a way to help them achieve short- and long-term learning goals, most commonly at the middle school and high school levels. PLPs are generally based on the belief that students will be more engaged in their learning 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 learn it to achieve their personal goals.
The goal of a personalized learning plan is to bring greater coherence, focus, and purpose to the decisions students make about their education.
To help students develop their PLP, James Logan High School has adopted the use of CaliforniaColleges.edu, which is a comprehensive resource developed through the California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI). CCGI partners with K-12 school districts to support students, counselors, parents, and community-based organizations with technological tools to facilitate their post-secondary planning and preparation process. The website allows students to build their own comprehensive online portfolio where they can reflect on a realistic and optimal picture of their past, present, and future selves. Student Plans of Study and Portfolios can be easily shared with educators, advisors, and parents.
Student accounts will be created by James Logan's School Counseling staff and students will meet with their School Counselor periodically to continue to explore and develop their PLPs. In addition, more information and tools will be made available on this webpage as this program evolves.
