Intervention at Athens Drive
Understanding Academic Recovery Plans (ARP) and how they benefit students
An ARP is a document that identifies teacher concerns, documents goals for each student to assist in the student’s academic progress, and establishes interventions that will help make a difference for each individual student. If a student receives lower than a 60% in the 1st quarter of the 1st semester or lower than a 60% in the 3rd quarter in the 2nd semester than a student will be given an ARP. The ARP will list a number of parameters in which the student needs to achieve. If the student completes all of the agreed upon items AND receives a 60% in the quarter following the ARP then their previous quarter’s grade will be automatically raised to a 60%.
