Individualized Learning Plan (ILP)

The Individualized Learning Plan (ILP): A Key Element in Your Student's Success

An Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) provides each student with a holistic roadmap to support their journey through Insight School of Wisconsin (ISWI) and onward to post-secondary opportunities.

Developed in partnership with the student's family and ISWI staff, the ILP captures course plans, personal interests, and college and career aspirations. For a struggling student, the ILP takes on even greater importance.

Typically led by your student’s school counselor, the ILP team creates a unique plan for each child, designed to organize and properly sequence your student's coursework while articulating their academic strengths and challenges. Some students are ready to move more quickly in one subject but need extra help in others. The ILP establishes a strategy to help make the right choices for your student.

A crucial element is our unique assessment testing.

  • We use leading evaluation methods to clearly identify and monitor your student's strengths and challenges.
  • Each child takes benchmark tests at the beginning of the year to diagnose strengths and challenges.
  • We include state testing with a focus on fine-tuning exactly what each child needs.
  • We develop realistic learning objectives and a comprehensive, customized plan to reach goals.
  • Ongoing testing is administered, as needed, to ensure each child is making progress against goals: this is a powerful aspect of our personalized approach, as it enables teachers and parents to know how much progress a child is actually making.

The ILP is informed by teachers who work with tools in the Online School (OLS) to make sure the lesson plans are based on your child's needs and the progress they’ve made to date. Parents and students can use the planning and progress tools to organize their schedule, create flexibility when needed, and track completed work. These easy-to-use features give you the real-time information you want and the structure your child needs.
