ECHS – Individualized Learning Program: Individualized Learning Program (ILP) students have a flexible, part-time schedule similar to that of college students. ILP students meet with their personal teachers for one hour each week and attend school on a year-round basis. In addition to their weekly one-on-one meetings, students also take modular courses for computers, math and career courses. Modular courses are generally two hours per day, two days per week for a 16-20 week period. The personal teacher will provide in-depth, one-on-one instruction and assist with course selection and sequence. ECHS’s specialized teachers are adept at tailoring the instruction to individual student’s needs.
