Midland Middle/High School will hold Remediation Day for Quarter 1 on Monday, October 18th.
For those of you new to Remediation here is the definition – At a basic level, remediation (or reteaching) means “teaching again” content that students previously failed to learn. Ideally, remediation or reteaching is done early in the learning process, before additional skills are taught or more formal mastery tests or summative exams are administered.
On Wednesday, October 13 all MMHS students will take a Remediation Checkout Sheet around to their teachers to find out if they are meeting all academic standards in each class.
Students who are meeting all academic standards and have no detentions will receive a gold letter at the end of the school day Wednesday explaining that they are excused from school on Monday the 18th. They do have the option to come and work with a teacher to try to improve grades.
Students who have not met all academic standards in any of their classes or who have detentions to make up will receive a pink letter stating they are required to attend class on Monday the 18th.
On Remediation Day the students would report directly to the classroom of the teacher who they need to work on academic standards. They will work on that class until they have met all standards.
On Remediation Day any students having detentions to serve will report to Carrie Oakley in the Learning Center and get those done.
When students have met all standards and have all detentions served they can sign out in the office if they have transportation to go home. If they do not have transportation they can go to the library for the remainder of the school day and the buses will run on their normal routes.
So watch for those papers to come home. If you have questions please feel free to contact a teacher, counselor, principal or office for further explanation.
