Taken a few HS freshmen out of block class and algerba all year and then have a strategy class. Math lesson videos teacher taping so students can go online and view. Next year will add more Elementary PD. Next year will still be in needs improvement which means we have to use 10% of title monies. It is two years in needs improvement and then takes 2 years to get out. Doris do we have a person in study hall that could help Math students? Always available such as a math coach. When kids leave class they can still help. Might be able to do this once out of needs improvement as the funds now have to be used for PD.
