Individualized Online Learning Plan

Plan for Success

The entire planning process for a post-high school career, whether that includes college or not, is especially critical for a student who has experienced challenges in the past. We help Heron Virtual Academy of South Carolina (HVASC) students plan for a future they can attain and feel good about, which helps motivate them in their current studies.

Individualized Learning Plan (ILP)

All students complete an ILP. Developed in partnership with you, your student, and HVASC staff, the plan establishes a strategy to help make the right choices for your student and includes:

  • Course plans
  • Academic strengths and challenges
  • Personal interests
  • College and career aspirations

Participate in Regular Assessments

At HVASC, we use leading evaluation methods to clearly identify and monitor where each student is academically.

  • Each student takes benchmark tests at the beginning of the year to diagnose strengths and challenges.
  • We include state testing with a focus on fine-tuning exactly what each student needs.
  • We develop realistic learning objectives and a comprehensive, customized plan to reach goals.
  • Ongoing testing is administered, as needed, to ensure each student is making progress against goals—enabling teachers and parents to know how much progress a student is actually making.

Teachers work with tools in the online school platform to ensure lesson plans are based on student needs and to see the student’s progress to date. Parents and older students can use the planning and progress tools to organize their schedules, create flexibility, and track completed work. These easy-to-use features give you the real-time information you want and the structure students need.
