HCPSS MPIA Request #2018-232

Requested Information
I am requesting directions to staff related to the implementation of bridge programs/plans/packets for students who failed the PARCC test and need to complete a bridge program to graduate. Specifically, I am looking for how the programs must be completed - in class, during tutorial, etc. and how to manage the implementation for just those students who have not passed PARCC. For instance, what are students who passed the PARCC test being taught when other students are working on their bridge assignments? Is it left up to the individual
school or is there a plan system-wide?
Responsive Documents
As presented to staff prior to the 2017-2018 school year which addresses the implementation of bridge projects. Please note, the Office of Curricular Programs indicates some guidance has been updated verbally since this summer as implementation is an ongoing process.
