Student Success Plan

Act 930 of 2017 defines a Student Success Plan as “a personalized education plan intended to assist students with achieving readiness for college, career, and community engagement.” By the end of the 2018-2019 school year, each eighth grade student shall have a Student Success Plan in place that is developed by school personnel in collaboration with parent and student. Although districts are encouraged to develop a Student Success Plan for every student, a Student Success Plan is only required for students beginning in eighth grade, and must be updated at least annually thereafter.
