Personalized Learning Requirements

Personalized Learning In designing the Oregon Diploma, the State Board of Education remains committed to preparing each student for successful transitions to his or her next steps. Personalized learning, learning beyond the classroom and connections to the adult world are critical for preparing each student, whatever path they take after graduation, for the vast challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

The following requirements personalize the diploma for each student and help students plan for their post-high school education and career goals:

  • Education Plan and Profile

    Students develop a plan and profile to guide their learning and document progress toward their personal, career, and post-high school goals.

  • Career-Related Learning Experiences

    Students participate in experiences that connect classroom learning with real life experiences in the workplace, community, and/or school relevant to their education plan.

  • Extended Application

    Students apply and extend their knowledge in new and complex situations related to the student’s personal and/or career interests and post-high school goals through critical thinking, problem solving, or inquiry in real world contexts.
