An Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) is required each year for all students in the state of South Carolina beginning with grade 8. This is not to be confused with pre-registration for high school. This meeting is to review career assessments, graduation requirements for high school for the state of South Carolina, High school credit class progress, college scholarship information, and other very pertinent information for you and your child. Our 8th grade students will attend this meeting with a school counselor and parents will join by phone. Letters were sent home with progress reports. Virtual students/parents will have IGP meetings through a google meet and during virtual student breaks/lunch times. Letters were emailed to Virtual students.
