Henry County Schools
Descriptor Code: IDDB
Remedial Programs  
Print Policy
 

The Georgia Department of Education requires Henry County Schools to provide a Remedial Education Program in grades six through twelve for students who have identified deficiencies in reading, writing and mathematics.

Requirements

Each year the Georgia Department of Education shall utilize data submitted by local school systems during the regular student records collection process to conduct an evaluation of REP.  By September of each year, the DOE shall report the achievement results of all students who received instructional services through the REP in the conent area(s) in which they were served.  The evaluation shall include the components required by the BOE at each grade level.

 

No more than 25% of the school population in eligible grades may be served in the remedial program.  Schools with more than 50% of their students eligible for free or reduced-priced meals may provide remedial education services for a higher percent of students, up to 35% of the school's full-time equivalent population in grades 6-12.

Student Eligibility Requirements

 

1.  Eligible grades are six through twelve.

 

2.  Students must meet two of the criteria in the state guidelines.

3.  Students in special education programs may not be served in the same content area in
     REP.

Program Design

1.   Remedial teachers will provide individualized instruction that will take into account the student’s learning style.  The process of teaching the basic skills must lend itself to an integrated approach across the total curriculum.

 

2.  The model for delivery of services must conform to one of the State models or must have prior approval under Georgia Department of Education's plan for alternative models.
