REMEDIATION RECOVERY PROGRAM
The Buena Vista City School Division supports efforts to provide instructional support to those students who have demonstrated a need for such support by their failure to pass certain SOL assessments. Therefore, the Buena Vista City School Division will establish a Remediation Recovery Program. Such program will be delineated through regulations promulgated by the Superintendent. Students eligible to participate in such program will include students in kindergarten through eighth grade who have failed the SOL assessment in the areas of English (Reading, Literature, and Research) or mathematics, and students at the high school level who have failed to pass an SOL assessment in mathematics.
Students who retake an SOL must have participated in some form of remediation, including the remediation recovery program, to be eligible for retesting. Also, students who participate in the remediation recovery program are expected to retake the applicable SOL test at the next regularly scheduled administration of the test, and may only be counted in remediation recovery once for one grade/SOL test. At the high school level, students may continue to retake end-of-course tests as many times as necessary to earn verified credit.
Schools shall maintain evidence of a student’s participation in a remediation recovery program along with the scores of any SOL tests taken following remediation in the student’s record.
The following students are ineligible for the remediation recovery program:
· Students in kindergarten through eighth grade who are retested because they were retained and had not previously passed a grade-level test in English (Reading, Literature, and Research) or mathematics.
· Students who retake an end-of-course test as a result of failing and retaking a mathematics course at the high school level.
