How many state components are in the Student Curriculum (8th Grade) Plan Process?


Beginning in 8th grade, each grade level has state components that are developmentally appropriate for that age group. The components include career and interest assessments; individual course plan(s); activities such as online research or databases about career, colleges and financial aid or scholarships; workplace learning; individual student reflection paragraph and a summary of the portfolio as it builds toward high school graduation. There are 33 required state components over the 5 years with additional opportunities to document extra-curricular or co-curricular activities, certificates and awards and community projects and service in the student portfolio.
