If transfer students did not complete the required components in their previous grade, do we have to make them go back and do the ones they missed?

Answer: 

Schools are not required to have students make up components they missed when not enrolled in your district.  However, some of the later Guideways use data stored through an earlier component so if time permits, the student is encouraged to go back and complete the assessments and activities from the previous year. Also the Guideways were carefully chosen from all that is offered in I Have A Plan Iowa™ to create a flow of career planning so students will likely benefit from those experiences even if they are out of order.  The desired student outcome is a career and educational planning process that is flexible and that the student is able to revise as plans change.
