Board Policy
Atkinson County Schools
Descriptor Code: IDDB
Remedial Programs  
Print Policy

The Atkinson County Board of Education believes that schools exist for the purpose of educating all youth in their fullest potential so that they may become self-reliant and responsible citizens.  The Board believes each student has individual needs, abilities, and interests that are uniquely his/hers, and that every student should be given an equal opportunity to learn based on these individual needs, interests, and abilities.

The Quality Basic Education Act (QBE) provides for the operation of the Remedial Education Program (REP) for students who are significantly behind expectations of progress in reading and mathematics.

The Superintendent shall establish a remedial education program in grades nine through twelve based on student eligibility requirements and other program guidelines as stipulated by the Georgia Board of Education.

Remedial Education Program instructional activities shall be designed to move the student to grade level or higher as soon as possible while ensuring subject mastery.  REP instruction at the designated levels shall serve as the students’ basic reading and/or mathematics instruction and shall not be considered as supplemental.

The school system shall submit an annual report to the Georgia Board of Education that contains pertinent data on students enrolled the previous year.

An exception to Remedial Education Program placement may be granted for a student when significant data indicates REP placement is not appropriate.
