Student Support System - Math & Reading
Mathematics & Reading
1. 10th & 11th Graders are given a benchmark assessment through the Study Island program to determine if students meet proficiency levels of all state indicators.
2. Benchmark assessment will have four questions related to each state indicator.
3. Students must score a minimum of 75% to meet acceptable proficiency level as established by math and reading teams at SHS.
4. If a student scores 50% on any indicator, the math or reading team will meet to discuss the student and possibly recommend retesting on that particular indicator or go ahead and admit into the XLT program.
5. XLT stands for Extended Learning Time and will operate during the 60 minute 4th period and will be divided up into XLT I and XLT II which will last for 30 minutes each.
6. Any student in grades 10 and 11 who scores less than 50% on any indicator will automatically be admitted into XLT I and/or XLT II for math, reading, or both.
7. XLT I will be for any student who needs support in either math or reading.
8. XLT II will be for any student who needs support in both math and reading.
9. XLT I students who are not in XLT II will be dismissed to an Academic Enrichment period once XLT I ends.
10. Students who are in XLT II will move to the appropriate classroom to receive support in either math or reading.
11. Once students have received intensive instruction and support related to a specific failed indicator, they will then take a 5-question quiz related to that indicator. If the student gets 4 out of 5 correct, he will be awarded a blue ribbon and will advance to the next indicator.
12. Once a student receives blue ribbons on all previously failed indicators, he will then be eligible to move into an elective of his choosing. If the student is a junior, he will take his state assessment after receiving all required blue ribbons and scoring at least 75% on all indicators on a post formative assessment.
13. Sophomore students who move into an elective will be progress-monitored every two weeks to ensure that they are maintaining mastery levels of all indicators.
