8th Grade IGP Conferences
8th Grade IGP Conferences
It's time to schedule your 8th grade student’s Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) conference. During this short discussion, you and your student will meet with their school counselor to review courses to ensure graduation requirements are being met and that your student’s college and career goals are on the same track as their academic coursework. This annual planning meeting begins in the 8th grade and is an important component of the Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) of 2005. Due to COVID-19, all IGP conferences will be conducted virtually. Our hope is that MMS will have 100% parental participation and that you will find the IGP conference helpful and productive.
Please use the links below to schedule a conference based on the first letter of your student's last name.

- For confirmed COVID-19 or flu, you will need to contact our school nurse for specific guidelines for returning to school.
- Drink lots of water, rest and wash your hands frequently.
- Cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm.
