Student Success Plans

What is a Student Success Plan (SSP)?

Public Act No. 11-135

For the school year commencing July 1, 2012, and each school year thereafter, each local and regional board of education shall create a student success plan for each student enrolled in a public school, beginning in grade 6. Such student success pans shall include a student’s career and academic choices in grades six to twelve, inclusive.”

The Student Success Plan (SSP) is an individualized student driven plan that will be developed to address every student’s needs and interests to help every student stay connected in school and to achieve post secondary educational and career goals. The Student Success Plan is a collection of programs and services that addresses academic, personal/social, and career exploration topics for students in grades 6 – 12.

The purpose of the Student Success Plan is to:

  • Set personal and academic goals
  • Support rigorous high school expectations
  • Explore postsecondary education and careers

An effective Student Success Plan is built around three core components:


I. Academic Development

Student interest and aspiration are the basis for the development of the student’s academic program. A planned academic program will lead to the acquisition of the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to be an effective learner in school and across the life span. The SSP is designed to ensure that students complete their secondary education with 21st Century Skills, with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills necessary to compete in the global economy.


II. Career Development

The student will investigate their own interests and abilities as they relate to the world of work in the dynamic global economy. The customized plan will include varied and flexible educational opportunities, personal connections, and elective coursework, and targeted supports tied to each student’s education and/or career goals. The SSP, which guides students through secondary education on to postsecondary education and/or work, will allow students to make better career choices with the academic foundation to achieve their career and personal goals.


III. Social, Emotional and Physical Development

The SSP supports positive social, emotional and physical development, allowing students to more fully engage in the school environment and take the risks necessary for optimal academic performance. Student success within may be exemplified through establishing and maintaining positive interpersonal relationships, managing feelings and emotions, engaging in behaviors of positive physical health, demonstrating an appreciation for the needs of others, and embracing opportunities for academic, career, and postsecondary success.
