Additional Information:

Planning for Students' Successful Transition to Postsecondary and Employment (120B.125) legislation requires all students beginning no later than 9th grade to have a Personal Learning Plan around key elements. This plan should be looked at as a life plan that includes academic scheduling, career exploration, career and employment-related skills, community partnerships, college access, all forms of postsecondary training, and experiential learning opportunities.

The Planning for Students’ Successful Transition to Postsecondary Education and Employment (120B.125) Toolkit provides resources around the required elements as well as some recognized strategies and partnerships that could assist with implementing this directive. The training will provide opportunities to discover what elements schools already have in place and what needs to be addressed. Several schools will present information about the strategies that they are using. Time for planning will be provided.
