A Personalized Student Learning Plan is defined as a formalized plan and process that involves students setting learning goals based on personal, academic and career interests, beginning in the middle school grades and continuing throughout high school with the close support of adult mentors that include teachers, counselors and parents. (N.J.A.C. 6A:8)
The PSLP mentors are select schools that participated in the PSLP pilot program and have continued implementation. Each PSLP mentor has experience with implementation and is available during the 2013-2014 school year to share their successes and challenges with interested schools. Please feel free to contact them by telephone or email.
This guide provides a framework and strategies for school administrators and staff interested in learning how to implement a personalized student learning plan program at their schools. The framework contains ten core components necessary for PSLP program success, and resources to support implementation, including a readiness assessment, recommended tasks and timeline, and curriculum tools and resources.
The New Jersey Career Assistance Navigator (NJCAN), www.njcan.org, is designed to support lifelong career exploration, and career planning and decision making through easy to use, straightforward search and sorting utilities, and an online portfolio for saving information from all system components. Several new enhancements have been added for fall 2013, including a new interface and navigation, enhanced security for user accounts, improved usability and appeal for researching programs of study and occupations, and upgrades to the course planner. In addition, local financial aid information has been added to NJCAN to support post-secondary success, including 249 awards for New Jersey residents. School districts and education institutions interested in using NJCAN should contact email@example.com for registration information.
