Individual Graduation Plan (IGPS)
Individual Graduation Plans are designed to guide students toward their educational, career, and employment goals. During the Individual Graduation Plan meeting, we will discuss general graduation requirements, coursework, and opportunities related to the student's future goals. IGPs also help students align their high school courses with college entrance requirements. These plans are flexible and can change based on the student's aspirations, abilities, and interests.
IGP meetings are held yearly with the student's counselor.
IGPs typically begin at the end of September and run until January. IGP Invitation Letters are mailed home with the scheduled date and time of the meeting. If you are unable to meet on your scheduled date and time, you must notify the school counselor before the arranged time to reschedule. If you have not received your letter or have any questions concerning the IGP process, please reach out to your student's school counselor.
South Carolina has organized professions and careers into 16 broad categories. The U.S. Department of Education developed these Career Clusters. The Career Clusters each have their own coursework designed to help students better understand their chosen field of interest. Each career cluster identifies different pathways from secondary school to two- and four-year colleges, graduate school, and the workplace. Each public school district will offer a minimum of three clusters. Career Clusters can be explored at the SC Department of Education's website following this link.
