What is a Personalized Learning Plan?
A Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) is an educational tool designed to help you achieve academic and experiential success. With the assistance of LCS faculty, you will create a learning plan that identifies your short- and long-term educational and post-secondary goals, along with the steps necessary to attain these goals.
The Faculty and Staff at Ledyard Charter School will strive to:
- Create an environment that is student first, student-centered planning and student-centered learning.
- Discover meaning in every experience, endeavor, act, and challenging experience.
- Build and maintain relationships, which are crucial in the development of every person.
- Harness our personal strengths to make a positive impact.

- Provide a quality education that meets the needs of the individual student, while attaining a standard New Hampshire High School Diploma.
