REVIEW OF THE STUDENTS:
How would you best guide?
What do you notice?
Who would you want to partner with to support this
students’ success?
What bias(es) arise for you?
What resources/information do you need?
Group Dialogue
• What value do ICAP and
Plans of Study have for
students?
• How can we get staff,
parents and students to buy
in to the ICAP process?
• Who creates ICAPs at your
school/district? What is the
process?
• For those in post-secondary,
what value does a student’s
ICAP have as they enter
higher education?
• How can we encourage
available resources at the
district to create usable
plans?
• How do we show the value
of these to students?
• Groups have a list of what
they see their role in the
process is and how they can
make this a process that has
value.
