Remediation Helping Students Prepare for Exams

Remediation provides students a small group environment in which to review for exams and receive recovery hours for excessive absences.

Remediation and recovery for the spring semester will begin on Monday, May 9. Students who have excessive absences or who could benefit from remediation in end-of-course (EOC) courses have been contacted. The remediation/recovery plan is designed to give students a small group atmosphere in which to review for state-mandated tests while earning credit for excessive absences.   Parents and students can download the complete remediation/recovery schedule here

Administrators, guidance counselors, and teachers have identified students who have excessive absences and those who could benefit from remediation for EOC courses. These students have been notified of the schedule for recovery/remediation and encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to prepare for final exams. In addition to state EOC exams, remediation and recovery is available in all curriculum areas as stated on the schedule.  
For students who have exceeded their allowed number of absences, this opportunity gives them a flexible schedule in which to receive credit for courses while reviewing for exams. According to guidance counselor Kathy Cooper, “Remediation/recovery is a great opportunity to obtain credit in required and elective courses and stay on target for graduation.” Parents who have questions about remediation/recovery should contact their child’s teacher(s) or Debbie Griffin in Guidance.
