Individual Graduation Plans
The State of South Carolina requires that every 8th grader participate in an Individual Graduation Plan conference (IGP). Along with parents/guardians, every 8thgrader will meet during the year with a school counselor to select a career cluster and discuss high school plans and high school graduation requirements. If parents did not schedule a conference at open house, they may do so by clicking here for a link to the sign-up page. Parents will be mailed an invitation with a date and time. As the conference day approaches, guidance staff will call parents to remind them of the meeting and the student will receive a reminder notice to bring home. The guidance staff look forward to meeting with parents and their student for this important conference. Parents should call the school counseling office (355-1711) if they have any questions.
