Kentucky Experience
Origins of the ILP
 In the 1990’s Kentucky initiated development of IGP

 A paper-based career portfolio

 Designed to help students with career and education
  planning

 Development of student IGP’s to be guided by
  counselors and advisors

 IGP viewed as a means to encourage involvement by
  parents
Limitations and Problems with the IGP
   IGP folders ordered from KDE totaled only 14%

   Only 20% of parents polled aware of the IGP

   Percentage of school’s complying difficult to establish

   Completing plans time consuming for students

   Sharing plans difficult (often locked in counselor’s filing cabinet)

   Involvement of parents difficult to achieve

   Much of the data required redundant to data captured in the
    statewide student information system (SIS)
Forward with the ILP
   Decision reached to issue an RFP for the development of an
    online version of the IGP – renamed the ILP

   Key objectives of the new ILP:
    –   To raise the level of student achievement in middle & secondary school
    –   To increase the percentage of students who enter high school and persist to a
        diploma
    –   To enable schools to plan for coursework, applied learning experiences, and
        other activities that respond to the needs of individual learners
    –   To facilitate the advising team approach for students
    –   To increase the percentage of high school graduates who successfully
        transition to a postsecondary education or training program that is selected
        based on their unique academic and career interests
Key Components of the ILP
1. Student ILP

2. Parent ILP

3. School-Level ILP component for Administrators

4. District-Level ILP component for Administrators

5. State-Level ILP component for Administrators
New Features Developed for the ILP
   Single Sign-On
   Advisement Log
   Annual Review
   Annual Survey
   Post-Secondary Goals
   Parent Version
   Statewide Reporting System
   Increased storage space
   Graduation requirements
Technical Challenges
 Annual Archiving of ILPs

 Customizable Reporting

 Support for American with Disabilities Act

 Integration with statewide SIS

 Silent login to GoHigherKY.org

 Integration of statewide testing results

 Integration of transcripts (on hold)
Issues Resolved during Development
 How to integrate statewide Common Course Codes?

 What security model to employ for School ILP?

 What completion standards to employ?

 Should students be able to change passwords?

 At what age should students be able to invite others to
  view their ILP?

 How should we integrate transcripts?
Issues Resolved during Development
 How should the menu buttons be organized?

 How should Gear Up schools/students be identified in
  the system?

 How should alternative diploma options be highlighted
  for students?

 How can we integrate Expanded Learning Options, ESS
  (Extended School Services), LEP (Limited English
  Proficiency) and G&T (Gifted and Talented)

 How to incorporate Performance Based Credits
