This guide is intended for use by parents in the 5th and 8th grade Grade Placement Committee Meetings. It contains both a section for advocating during the grade placement decision and during the development of Accelerated Instruction. Under the statute, a second failed test opportunity triggers a GPC meeting to design the accelerated instruction plan (which is often a summer school plan). Following the third administration, the promotion decision is made along with a determination of AI for the following year. As a parent, by law you have input into all of this. AI decisions (such as loss of electives) should never be made without you!
This guide includes forms and questions for even the most adversarial meetings. You may obviously use whatever portions you feel are appropriate.
