Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) 8th grade only

Parents and Students
 
All 8th grade students are required to begin an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) before the end of their 8th grade school year. Students must select the career cluster in which they are most interested. The classes in high school will be matched to the chosen career cluster as closely as possible. Students will have an opportunity every year during high school to change their career cluster interest. Changes in a career cluster will not harm the student, as they will only modify future classes during the scheduling process. Our students are fortunate that Central High School offers 13 of the 16 Federal Career Clusters. Please complete the IGP document using the link shown below. All items marked with an * asterisk must be completed. Please submit your responses by May 1, 2020. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Brock at kbrock@chesterfieldschools.org to discuss questions or concerns.
