Knox Central High School has gained statewide attention for their method of implementing ILP’s (Individual Learning Plans) at the school.

ILP’s are a web-based planning tool that allows students to begin planning for their future career.  The tool allows students to monitor past academic achievements, plan for future course work, and explore options for life after high school. 

Kentucky Teacher, the online magazine for K-12 teachers in Kentucky, recently featured Knox Central for their efforts in ensuring that all students complete all sections of the web-based tool.   By setting up a rotating schedule, the business department is working with all students on their ILP’s this year.   The school hopes to have 100% completion by the end of the school year.
