Personal Learning Plans

Planning for Students' Successful Transition to Postsecondary Education and Employment

Minnesota legislation requires all students, starting in 9th grade, to have a "plan" around seven key elements. This plan should include:

  • Academic Scheduling
  • Career Exploration
  • 21st Century Skills
  • Community Partnerships
  • College Access
  • All Forms of Post-Secondary Training
  • Experiential Learning Opportunities

M State is here to help!

  • Minnesota Department of Education Toolkit - Resources in all seven required areas, as well as strategies and partnerships that can help districts implement the directive
