    Instructional Support


Students who are on track to graduate high school with grades of “C” or better will have a better chance to be eligible for college admissions and financial aid awards. To support students towards postsecondary success, the A-G Intervention and Support team has created ELA and Mathematics resources for our students whether they need academic intervention, a course extension opportunity, or credit recovery to re-take and pass an A-G required high school course. These options are provided to help students achieve grades of “C” or better, increasing the number of students eligible for a four-year university admission and favorable financial aid awards packages. Asynchronous PDs for educators are available for our in-house created programs with in-person support by request. The A-G team can also connect school teams with resources and training from District-approved online learning providers such as Imagine Learning.

All students should be monitored at each five-week grading period for on-track status and early warning indicators. Students struggling to meet standards or learning targets, or whose grades are declining, can be matched to real-time intervention resources. Students with end-of-course grades of D or F will need intensive course options to raise a low grade or pass a required course. Refer to program descriptions below for information on supports for your secondary students and training for educators.

Purpose

To provide timely, personalized grade level resources and supports in specific skills/concepts to fill gaps in learning, prevent low grades and increase grade-level proficiency. Interventions are ideally implemented during the students’ regularly scheduled class, as an integral part of differentiated first instruction. Schools may also offer dedicated intervention labs during Advisory period (if available), before or after school, on Saturdays, and during intersession.

Resources
  • A-G Intervention and Support-created Just-in-Time Intervention programs are housed in Schoology groups. Teachers can identify resources based on need, and assign for small groups and/or individual practice.

Purpose

Students who have earned a final semester grade below a “C” should be given the opportunity to engage in additional time, practice and assignments to fill gaps in learning, demonstrate proficiency in key skills and concepts, and improve their grade to a C or better. ACE can take place immediately following the semester in which the low grade was posted. The teacher of record and counseling team will support students in ACE to engage in independent or guided learning, as a grade improvement can be activated on their transcript upon successful completion of course requirements. Giving students access to ACE is a priority for raising C or better rates, improving eligibility for 4-year college admissions, and increasing financial aid award options.

Purpose

High school students who earned a final grade of F in a course required for graduation shall be given the opportunity to retake the course, allowing them to demonstrate proficiency, earn a passing grade, and receive numerical credit. Also, students with a final grade of D who need intensive support in the course can be programmed into credit recovery to complete their unfinished learning. Courses re-taken and passed for numerical credit will generate an additional grade in the student’s transcript, with the same course code as the initially failed course. The goal for any credit recovery opportunity is to support students to attain grade level proficiency in skills and standards, earn a final grade of C or better, and to graduate on time with their cohort.

Pathways
  • Enrollment in a regularly scheduled class during the instructional day provides a traditional approach for students to recover credits.
  • During Summer Term, Winter, or Spring Break.
  • Adult Education sites provide an evening option for the student to take the class.
  • Independent Study offers students a flexible pace to recover credits by entering into a written contract with the teacher of record, their parent/guardian, and the school counselor. In-person and online support with a LAUSD credentialed teacher can be used for this pathway.
  • RIG (Recovery + Intervention = Graduation) is for students to recover up to two courses at a neighboring continuation high school site while remaining enrolled at their high school.
  • Local Design programs are developed by school/department team, utilizing District-approved textbooks and resources to create credit recovery programs that fit their student population needs. Local Design programs are vetted and approved by Regional leadership.
Resources
  • A-G Intervention and Support-created PASS (Performance Assessment Student Support) is a flexible, modular program built on EGI principals. Semester programs in ELA grades 9A-12A and Algebra 1, Geometry A/B and Algebra 2 A/B are available in Schoology. PASS is a student-paced option that can take place in a school day intervention or Advisory period (if available as part of the master schedule) or beyond the instructional day. The PASS class is led by a LAUSD teacher credentialled in ELA or Math who has completed the onboarding PD outlined below. Completing the PD will allow teachers access to all program materials and a bank of teacher-facing instructional supports.
  • Imagine Learning virtual courses provide a variety of A-G required subject areas  for students to recover credits. Such courses will be led by a LAUSD credentialled teacher serving as mentor.
  • Imagine Learning Blended Course licenses may be available to schools; contact the Regional office for information.
