Completion of an ILP is required by regulation by the Kentucky Department of Education. Completion data will be collected at the state level through this web-enabled ILP system. Students must complete the web-enabled ILP (or a paper version) every year unless the ARC determines it is not appropriate for individual students to complete. The Alternative ILP Completion option allows teachers and advisors to indicate which students at their school are fulfilling the ILP requirement through alternative means. It is important to note that even if the alternative completion option is selected the student can and should still use all of the resources in the ILP for transition planning.
Purposes for Alternative Completion
- Exceptional Education Student – The student has exceptionalities that prohibit them from completing some or all components of the web-enabled ILP. The student’s ARC made the documented decision what was appropriate for student to complete.
- Non-Traditional Student – The student is in facility or location without internet access. Student has an alternative form of plan on file with their home school.
Please note that it is the schools responsibility to ensure Minimum High School Graduation Requirements (704 KAR 3:305) are met, even if student is marked with an alternative completion status.
