Personalized Learning Plan (PLP)

Students along with their parent(s), an Academy guidance counselor and the curriculum team create a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP).

The purpose of the Personalized Learning Plan is to deepen and strengthen the learning experience for all Davidson Academy students. Personalized Learning Plans are consistent with the Davidson Academy philosophy of treating students as individuals who are invested in their own learning. 

The PLP is an adaptable document that is used to guide students through a rigorous core curriculum and help them make elective decisions based upon their interests and commensurate to their levels of ability, achievement and motivation. Students, with adult guidance, including staff and parents, propose ideas for the personalization process. Personalization is not “doing your own thing” or altering the core; it is the core experience with a variety of options based on student interest and competence. Personalization also refers to adapting individual classroom experiences to provide students with a pace and depth appropriate to their abilities and interests.

With students and their parent(s) participating in the process, PLPs are reviewed and revised at least once each academic year.
