Strategy: Supports for Pacing

Multiple opportunities to help Learners stay on-pace

Context

While Learners are able to move at their own pace at Lindsay High School, there is an expectation that they will complete a certain amount of content within a given year. Facilitators have set pacing benchmarks for Learners to know whether they are on pace, ahead, or behind. For those that are behind, there are many options to help them catch up. Learners are often able to catch up on coursework during Personalized Learning Time. In addition to offering remediation opportunities in class, Facilitators also rotate staying after school for Learners that need extra time to catch up. Lastly, Facilitators often build extra time into the end of the year to provide Learners with one final opportunity to get back on pace for the year.
