Student Retentions

RATIONALE

Below is the retention report for the last five years. The past two years have shown a downward trend in retentions.  The Light Retention Scale is utilized at the elementary level to make more informed decisions concerning retention.  Questions asked are, what was going to be different if a student is retained?  Could the student go on to the next grade and interventions be implemented with fidelity? Answers to these questions play a part in the decision making process for each student considered for retention.
