What is Learn.Plan.Succeed.?
Learn.Plan.Succeed. expands Chicago Public Schools’ current definition of a
postsecondary plan to include additional pathways for students. Every student will be
supported in exploring options, deciding on a pathway, and creating a concrete plan
for after they graduate through intentional conversations with their school counselor as
well as other postsecondary activities.
What Does This Mean For My Student?
Starting with the Class of 2020, students will be required to provide evidence of a
concrete postsecondary plan to their school counselor in order to graduate.
How Can I Help My Student Be Successful?
Though Learn.Plan.Succeed. is a new graduation requirement, there are already
plenty of resources in place to ensure that your student is informed and prepared to
choose a postsecondary plan.
See your student’s counselor to register for Naviance for Parents to support your
student’s college and career exploration and to monitor their Naviance
engagement and Individual Learning Plan (ILP) completion.
- Ask your student about their interests to generate ideas about what they want to
do after high school. Brainstorm together to come up with strategies to work
towards those goals.
- Contact your student’s school counselor to schedule meetings to stay up-to-date
on his or her progress and important deadlines.
