What can educators do to make the move to high school as smooth as possible and help students achieve success in that vital 9th grade year? Here are six things for educators to consider.
Intervention and remediation (also commonly referred to as reteaching) have the same fundamental goal: supporting struggling students with focused learning opportunities to achieve academic success.

Across the country, educators are committed to providing early intervention to address deficits in student learning before they ever have a chance to widen. Whether your school or district subscribes to one of the more common response to intervention (RTI) or multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) models or finds one of the many other flavors of intervention to be the right fit, there are some common factors to consider that will ensure a successful program. Now, heading into yet another new school year, it’s more important than ever that you are well equipped with proven program options to help meet the level of support each tier requires.

While many states are focusing on combatting chronic absenteeism as a part of their ESSA plans, it’s important for administrators to be armed with the resources necessary to create a plan of attack.
