TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas State Board of Education is "strongly recommending" that the state's schools develop individual plans of study for every high school student.

However, the board declined Tuesday to require schools to form the plans. Board members noted many school districts don't have enough counselors to develop so many plans, known as ISPs.

ISPs are usually based on a career interest surveys that students complete in the eighth grade. The students then select classes in high school to meet their career interests.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports a Department of Education survey found about 88 percent of school districts give students the chance to develop an ISP, but only about half prepare the plans for all high school students.
