What are the PLP Critical Elements?
By November 2015, every seventh and ninth grade student in Vermont is required to have a personalized learning plan (PLP) addressing the “Critical Elements.” Just what are these, and how did they come about?
After the passage of Act 77, the Vermont Agency of Education convened a work group comprised of students, teachers, principals, superintendents, school counselors, and other interested parties. This group was tasked with outlining the minimum components, known as Critical Elements, needed for a PLP to be in alignment with state statutes. These components outline items such as a student’s strengths, abilities and skills, results of career assessments, and individual student goals.
