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.
