High school graduation is of critical importance to the prospects of students in the United States. For many, the national graduation rate is the ultimate measurement of the effectiveness of the nation’s school system, which is why it is important to periodically check in with the available stations in the U.S. and to determine what can be done to make sure that every student has as bright a future as possible.
Virtual School Implementations for Student Retention, Transient Populations, and Credit Recovery “Minimesters”
Thinking about implementing a virtual program in your school or district? Considering options to improving your existing virtual school? Then, join us for an upcoming live webinar series where we will take a look at virtual learning from a variety of different angles!
At Edmentum, we’re familiar with the impact that blended learning, intervention, credit recovery, and remediation in grades 6–8 can have on a district. Check out a few of these inspiring success stories straight from middle schools across the country.
The Edmentum Professional Services team has taken notes from countless successful Courseware implementations that focused on credit recovery programs for numerous districts to bring you a few best practices on how to manage your own online credit recovery program in the hopes that both students and educators make the very most of their credit recovery intervention program.
We recently shared best practices on how to implement a credit recovery program with Courseware. Now, our team of expert consultants will share best practices they’ve collected over many years in the classroom, which include how to keep your Courseware online credit recovery program on track to success based on what we’ve learned from partnering with schools across the country who have discovered what worked (and what didn’t work) when rolling out their own credit recovery programs.
A successful intervention program can make a difference for struggling students and help them get back on track. With so much recent research on student intervention as well as trends that seem to pop up every minute, it can be hard to determine what truly makes an intervention program effective. While you’re working on improving your intervention program for the upcoming school year, be sure to keep these six tips in mind:
A high school diploma is more essential to success for today’s students than ever before. New state accountability systems under ESSA are recognizing this fact and putting a renewed focus on graduation rates. Of course, in an ideal situation, standard classroom formats would meet the needs of all students to keep them on track for graduation. In reality, challenges arise, setbacks occur, and some students fall behind in their studies.
Summer school is sometimes tough—there’s no way around it. While most students are looking forward to a break, some students are facing the reality that they may be headed back to school.
Recently, I had the pleasure of connecting with one of our Edmentum partners in Middlebury, Indiana, to gather some tried-and-true best practices from a blended learning program with a history of success. Lauren Bailey, the blended learning lab teacher at Northridge Middle School (NMS), leverages Edmentum Courseware for digital curriculum and EdOptions Academy for completely virtual courses in her blended learning lab.
