Individualized Learning Plans Across the U.S.

National Collaboratve on Workforce and Disability - NCWD For Youth

Many states have adopted policies that require all middle and/or high school students to develop and maintain an individualized learning plan in order to make schools more personalized and improve student outcomes. As part of the ILP Research Project, ODEP sought to determine the status of ILP implementation across the U.S. and compile the results into one, easy-to-use tool. The purpose of this Interactive Policy Map is to provide a snapshot of ILP implementation in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

This map was last updated in the winter of 2013. To learn more about ILP state trends, see the "ILPs Across the U.S." brief.
