Individual Learning Plan (ILP)

Career Cruising ILP Tool

The Career Cruising ILP Tool is designed to help students bring together their academic achievements, extracurricular experiences, and career and education exploration activities to create a concrete plan for success.
In their Web-based ILP, students begin by taking an interest inventory called the Career Matchmaker, which links the student's interests to possible careers. The students then:

  • Record their career, education, and life goals.
  • Bookmark careers and schools that are of interest to them, including their thoughts about each.
  • Explore the Kentucky Career Clusters and track the clusters that interest them.
  • Store their results from standardized tests and assessments, including Career Matchmaker.
  • Keep track of their career and educational exploration activities.
  • Record their extracurricular activities, hobbies, and interests.
  • Document their community service and work experience.
  • Develop their four-year high school education plan.
  • List awards and recognitions they have received.
  • Document learning services and programs they have participated in.
  • Upload related files, such as essays, scanned artwork, and letters of reference.
  • Create personalized, professional-looking résumés.

The ILP is fully integrated with the Career Cruising guidance system. Career Cruising is an Internet-based career-exploration and planning tool students use to explore career and college options and develop a career plan.

It's vital for parents to participate in their child's career discovery. Using the JCPS Parent Portal, parents will be able to log in to their child's ILP to guide their child and to review the ILP.
