Remediation of Student Learning
Assessment of Student Needs
On-going assessment of student learning should occur as part of the general screening procedures and during classroom instruction. Assessment can include, but should not be limited to: monitoring of student performance in the classroom, teacher observation, activity-based assessment, teacher-made tests, and standardized tests.
Provisions of Remediation/Intervention Action
Remediation should be provided in the classroom during instructional time by using various teaching methods and techniques, modifying teaching strategies and presentations, giving clear, corrective feedback and positive reinforcement.
Extended remediation should be planned as needed in collaboration with appropriate school personnel (counselor, principal, support team members and other teachers) and parents. Plans may include but should not be limited to: tutoring, special forms of instruction and study sessions.
Retention in grade is not a method of remediation.
Assessment of Remediation Activities
Documentation of student success and outcomes of remediation activities will be maintained through teacher, support staff and support team records.
Documentation of the broader impact of remediation activities will be reviewed through the school program review process and may be contained in documents that include, but are not limited to, indicators such as student outcomes, school climate surveys, quality indicators, and restructuring goals.
Adjustment of School Remediation Plan
It is the responsibility of each school to adjust remediation activities based on assessment of effectiveness and to incorporate those adjustments, in planning or implementation stages for the school program review process.
