The term of “making progress” will be used with students on a weekly basis to identify progress in the standards for academic learning, classroom behaviors, and attendance. When a student does not achieve weekly progress, a site-based intervention team will follow the Pyramid of Interventions protocol to determine additional support needed for individual student success. The team may include the student, his/her parent(s) or legal guardian(s), advisor, teacher(s), counselor, and administrator. The team may
recommend additional tutoring, supplemental home practice, individual computerized learning, schedule adjustments, behavior plans, attendance tracking plans, or other appropriate options. The team decision may also result in a temporary or permanent change of placement to another Alternative System educational program or another Alpine District educational program.
Progress is measured and reported in four categories:
1. Academic Achievement: Student achievement will be indicated on the weekly progress report. Assessment of student learning is based on a requirement of having all assignments turned in and a passing grade in the class. Students not earning credit in a class may not be allowed the privilege to re-take the class and will need to earn the credit by other means as determined by the Student Success team.
2. Tardies: Students who have 2 or more tardies in a week will be reported as not making progress. Students who are later than 20 minutes to class will be marked absent.
3. Attendance: Students with 2 or more absences in a week will be reported as not making progress. Work missed for absences must be made-up.
4. Behaviors: Students exhibiting inappropriate behaviors will be reported as not making progress.
