IGP Information

2022-2023 Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) Meetings

Our IGP conferences will be conducted by phone this year with the parent/guardian. The student will meet in-person with the school counselor during the conference, while the parent/guardian is on the phone.

Course registration, for the 2023-2024 school year, will occur during second semester.

** We ask that you DO NOT schedule the appointment during your child's lunch shift, while they are attending Swofford Career Center, Master Skills Center, attending their Service Learning site or during a dual enrollment class.**

What is an IGP?

IGP stands for Individual Graduation Plan. An IGP is a student's specific educational plan detailing the courses necessary for the student to prepare for graduation and to successfully transition into the workforce or post-secondary education. An individual graduation plan must:

•Align career goals and a student's course of study;
•Be based on the student's selected cluster of study and an academic focus within that cluster;
•Include core academic subjects, which must include, but are not limited to, English, math, science, and social studies to ensure that requirements for graduation will be met; Include experience-based, career-oriented learning experiences including, but not limited to, internships, apprenticeships, mentoring, co-op education, and service learning;
•Be flexible to allow change in the course of study but be sufficiently structured to meet graduation requirements and admission to post-secondary education;
•Incorporate provisions of a student's individual education plan, when appropriate; and,
•Be approved by a certified school guidance counselor and the student's parents, guardians, or individuals appointed by the parents or guardians to serve as their designee.

BSHS requires that every IGP:

•Incorporate the provisions of a student’s IEP when appropriate;
•Be approved by a certified school counselor and the student’s parent or legal guardian (or an authorized representative of the parent or guardian); and,
•Be reviewed by the student, the parent or legal guardian (or an authorized representative of the parent or guardian), and the certified school counselor at least once a year.
