  2. Each student shall develop a High School and Beyond Plan.
High School and Beyond Plan

By the first year of high school enrollment, each student shall develop a plan for satisfying the state and district’s high school graduation requirements and for their first year after high school completion. The plan should be developed in collaboration with the student, parent and district staff. The plan should include how the student will satisfy the district’s academic credit requirements, preparation for successfully passing required state assessments and the student’s goals for the year following graduation. Each student plan should be reviewed annually to assess student progress, to adjust the plan, and to advise the student on steps necessary for successful completion of the plan.
