Why Concern with student skill levels as they enter high school Formalized structure to help students experience success Reduction in student graduation without the necessary skill set as measured by MCA II assessments Stop recreating the wheel every time we do not make AYP Final analysis … it is less about AYP and more about the ability to reach and teach every child.
What: The Starting Point Intervention Committee JANUARY 8, 2008 THE QUESTION: HOW DO WE PREPARE ALL STUDENTS TO BE SUCCESSFUL FOR TODAYS GLOBAL SOCIETY AT EHS? Structural Changes –Technology preparation –Vocational classes –Keep students in our building –Middle college concept Appropriate Interventions –Early skill development – 6-12 common approach to interventions Embed standards in a more hands on curriculum for some learners Understanding where a student is academically in reading, writing and math
How Review of Research: article for each sub committee –Provided a common language –Starting point for conversation Define our needs based upon research Strands of research: –Service delivery models –Successful programs –Reasons for at-risk behaviors –Role of schools to accept all learners
Common Threads of At-Risk Programs Remedial Instruction –Before School –After School –During the School Day –Summer –On-Line Instruction Course/Credit Recovery –After School –On-line Skill Development –On-line Instruction
Common Threads (Continued) Course Advancement Work Prep Program Community Service Parent Engagement
Questions to Ponder What resources (time, space, people, funding) are available to be used to support this project? Are there existing resources that could be utilized to support this project? Who are the students to participate in these programs? Are student needs consistent with program goals?
Questions Continued…. Will our program need to diagnose individual needs and prescribe interventions? What methods will be used to engage, interest, and motivate our students? What would you like to see our students learn as a result of their participation? In what ways will involvement in our program enhance the participants in-school experience?
