Individual Graduation Plans (IGPs)
An Individual Graduation Plan or IGP is an education plan established to help assist a student achieve his or her specific education and career goals. During an IGP conference the student will discuss long term goals such as post-secondary education and career goals as well as short term goals such as high school areas of interests and classes. Coursework is recommended and discussed to assist the student in achieving these career goals.
Students from 2011 and beyond have been required to participate in an Individual Graduation Plan Conference with a School Counselor each academic year in accordance with the Economic and Education Development Act (EEDA). It is also requested by the state that parent/guardian(s) of each student also attend the IGP conference each year. For more information visit SC Department of Education Website.
Parent involvement is beneficial when it comes to planning an IGP. A team effort between school counselors, parents, and students helps provide the support needed to empower students to be successful while in high school as well as to prepare them for post-high school success. The IGP conference is a time for parents to ask face-to-face questions with the Career Facilitator in regards to their child’s education plan. It gives parents a greater sense of involvement with their children’s interests and activities as well as their educational and career plans.
For additional information about your child's IGP or to discuss career and educational interests, please contact your child's Career Facilitator.
Our Career Facilitators work with students throughout their high school years to help students explore interests and select courses of study based on post-high school plans. Students have the opportunity to participate in career interest inventories and research as well as attend tours and informational sessions for colleges of interest.
Students and parents are encouraged to remain in close contact with the Career Facilitators/Counselors to assist in the team effort to provide the support needed to ensure student success.
