Individual Program Plan

Parents of students with an IPP play an important role in the design and implementation of their child’s Individual Program Plan (IPP). The Plan is a document that acts like a toolbox: in it are the tools that have been tailor-made for each individual student. These tools were recommended by professionals (e.g., psychologists, occupational therapists, physicians, etc.) and are based on your child’s strengths and challenges. The tools include strategies and accommodations that support student success in the regular program of studies.

Parents are members of the IPP-Team and your input is essential to the development and ongoing revision of your student’s IPP. We request that you discuss and sign the IPP periodically throughout the school year. IPPs are mailed out in October, January/February, and June. Parents are also requested to provide input with teachers every reporting period. To support the engagement of our stakeholders through the process of IPPs, Parent/teacher conferences are held specifically for IPP families in September and February, at the beginning of each semester. Families receive an invitation to use the conference scheduler to book their appointments with all teachers.

Students with IPPs and who are writing diploma examinations may be eligible for special accommodations as outlined in their IPP. To be eligible for diploma special accommodations, teachers must provide documentation that a student has utilized accommodation(s) throughout the course. In addition, the school must receive informed consent from a student’s parent/guardian. This can be provided through the return of the IPP’s signature page.

Please do not hesitate to contact Karen Marchak to discuss any question or concerns regarding your child's educational needs.
