Updating your ALP

Students with Advanced Learning Plans, you need to create goals and fill out two documents by September 30th, please:

Here's the presentation about ALPs and examples of goals.  Decide what your goals are and how you will measure them.  Discuss them with your parents or guardians.

Document #1: Go into Naviance and click on your 'My Planner' tab and then 'Goals.'  In the section that says 7th/8th--Advanced Learning Plan, create an academic goal and click on 'add.'  Then use the + button or the section that says 'other goals' to create other academic goals (if you are identified in more than one area) as well as your affective goal.  Everyone will have a minimum of two goals (at least one academic and one affective goal.)  

Document #2: Here's the ALP feedback form that every student should fill out.

Students will be writing ALP goals in Naviance, a program that they will use in middle- and high school to explore and plan their post-secondary interests. Students will get a gmail message telling them that a task has been assigned to them in Naviance. Here is a document about how to log into Naviance. Parents, we would like your input and any feedback you want to give about your child's ALP.

View this document to see the Middle School Math Pathways. It gives you an idea of which classes your child will have access to in high school based on his or her current placement. Since programming may depend on your child's specific situation and offerings may change, it's always a good idea to contact a ThunderRidge counselor to verify this information.
