The ALPs are intended to provide personalized focus for the year. To be most helpful, they are living documents, and as such, they should be referred to and adapted as needed throughout the year. Progress monitoring refers to the follow up conversations between the student and either the Coordinator of Student Services, or the Director of Gifted and Talented Services, or their Enrichment Teacher. These follow up conversations happen once in winter and once at the end of the spring. Often an end of year conversation will address potential ALP goals for the following year.
