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.” Student Success Plans are developed by school personnel, in collaboration with parents and the student, and updated annually. The Student Success Plan is a working plan that is dynamic and visited periodically by the student and an advisor or mentor to support the overall success of the student to graduate ready for postsecondary opportunities.
There are four major components of the Student Success Plan.
- Guide the student along pathways to graduation
- Address accelerated learning opportunities
- Address academic deficits and interventions
- Include college and career planning components
Student Success Plans must be documented in a format and manner that is accessible to the student. While documentation of activities is required, it is critical to remember that student success planning is centered around trusted adults building relationships with students.
It’s about the process, not about the paper!
