Howdy, Internet. Thursday I asked this:
Suppose a school is transitioning to CCSS with an integrated sequence in 9-12. How do you remediate for students who fail, say, Gr 9 course?

I immediately received a link to a helpful article from @reimerpaul. Shortly after that @wahedahbug and a few others expressed interest in having a larger conversation about how best to remediate for students who aren’t really ready to move on to the next course in the CCSSM sequence.
(For the record, at my school we’re going integrated in high school, but I think best practices/wise policies regarding remediation can easily apply in either pathway.)
I really want to know three things from as many people as are willing to share:
- What are your school’s current policies and practices regarding remediation?
- What if any changes will your school make in your transition to CCSSM?
- Ignoring school culture, resistance to change, limited time/energy/resources, and other annoying realities, what would your ideal approach to remediation look like?
