Can a student/school start the portfolio earlier than 8th grade?

Answer: 

Students may access I Have A Plan Iowa and the Guideway components at any time; however, in order for the student’s Guideway to be considered complete for reporting purposes, it should be accessed during the appropriate academic year (i.e., the 8th grade Guideway should be completed during the 8th grade year). If a student has previously completed a component of the guideway, it does not have to be completed again. For example, if the student has previously completed a required assessment, that step can be skipped in the guideway.
