While in eighth grade, students at Random Lake Middle School complete a Careers class with Mrs. Rogers. During this class, each student creates an "Indivdiual Learning Plan" (ILP). The Individual Learning Plan is centered on personal/social growth and academic/career development. The purpose of the ILP is to encourage students to look ahead to their futures as they transition to high school and eventually into a career. The ILP is also created to assist the students in establishing goals for the future and determining how to achieve the established goals. At the end of the Careers class, each student is asked to share his/her ILP with a parent and discuss his/her dreams, development, and direction with the parent. After the discussion occurs, the parents are asked to fill out a Parent Feedback Form. All of the Individual Learning Plans are then passed on to Ms. Hausner, the high school counselor, for her to use with the students during their high school experience.
