FRESHMAN TRANSITION CURRICULUM

AMAZING RESULTS!

 

We're new users for the 2018-2019 school year. We just ended our first quarter and results are in: 45% decrease in multiple D's and F's for class of 450. 52% decrease in a single D or F. 33% decease in discipline referrals for minor infractions; 12% for major. We did a survey and kids said that the beginning of the year activities made them realize the high school counts and that the adults would be helping them along--very insightful responses!  Wish we would have had this years ago!

We  Beta tested this program for the 17/18 school year in a large high  school with a freshman class of almost 700, mainly at risk and  undeserved populations. We dedicated a semester to "Freshman Success"  classes and made each lesson the theme of the week building additional  ideas and activities into the program. At the end of the first quarter,  we expected our normal 60% of students with at least one "F."

When  I got the data, I made my AP go back twice and audit it:  18% of our  freshman had one "F" and only 10% had more than one "F." The results for  "D" work were just as amazing. I truly thought that someone had  "goosed" the data. 

You're  getting the revised program from our and our kids' input. If you don't  use this, then I am disappointed. It helped our kids: I can't wait to  see how these students fare in 10th grade during the 18/19 school year
