Individual Graduation Plans (IGPs)

In South Carolina, all 8th grade students work with parents or parental designees and school guidance personnel to create an electronic Indivdiual Graduation Plan (IGP). 

An Individual Graduation Plan outlines the courses necessary for the student to successfully prepare for graduation and transition into a profession or post-secondary educational experience. In addition to general graduation requirements and coursework, IGPs include out-of-classroom learning opportunities related to a student's chosen cluster of study. Students will update their IGPs annually, giving them the flexibility to change their cluster of study should their interest change.

Using the Pearson PowerSchool system, guidance personnel work with students and their parents to create eIGPs, make real-time program decisions, guide student career exploration and planning, review aggregate data and more.
