What is an IPP?
An IPP may involve any or all of the following:
· Following the same general curriculum outcomes but at a significantly different outcome level than would be expected for the grade-level in which the student is enrolled
· Deleting of a specific curriculum outcome or outcomes when the deleted outcome(s) is/are necessary to develop an understanding of the general curriculum outcome
· Where there is a need, providing programming for outcomes that are not part of Nova Scotia’s public school program (e.g., behaviour programming, life skills)
· Adding new outcomes where students require enrichment
An IPP is indicated on the student’s report card and/or transcript. A copy of the IPP is filed in the student’s cumulative record file.
Some students may require a combination of adaptation and an IPP. For example, a student may require adaptations in language arts and an IPP in math. All program planning is based on the student’s strengths and needs.
