AOE Proficiency-Based and Personalization Network Series



1) Participants will construct a graduate profile and help refine a development process that can be brought back to their school system. A graduate profile can help students, parents, guardians, community members, and educators to develop a shared vision for the skills, abilities, and knowledge necessary in the 21st century;

2) Participants will review recommendations from national experts and identify strengths and challenges of their current grading system;

3) Participants will work with Amy Rex, former principal of Harwood UHS, to create a framework for implementing PLPs in their schools. In addition, they will evaluate the critical elements of a PLP, examine how PLPs might differ from grade level to grade level, and discuss ways to make the personalized learning planning process more engaging for students.


1) An action plan that can inform their Continuous Improvement Plan around one of the above themes;

2) Practice with and understanding of the Plan Do Study Act cycle;

3) Resources around PLPs, graduate profiles, and grading practices; and
