What is The Power of M?
It is a program designed to assist students in mastering the standards and objectives of a course through targeted assessment and remediation.
How does it work?
Students who fail to make a mastery grade on any major assessment will remediate with their teacher and then retake the assessment. Students can stay after school for remediation and retesting. If a student fails to stay for a teacher-scheduled Power of M session, parents and/or administration will be contacted to work together to assist the student in completing the required work.
Who is The Power of M designed for?
It is primarily for ninth graders enrolled in a CP level course. The Power of M will not apply to New Tech courses or courses at the honors and AP levels. Designated Power of M classes include:
Accelerated Reading French I
Algebra I CP Integrated Business Applications (IBA)
English I CP Art I
Environmental Studies CP Spanish I
World Geography CP
When will the Power of M begin?
The program is slated to begin on Monday, September 12, 2016. It will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:55-4:40 pm. Some teachers may be available before school as well. Please reference individual teacher websites/syllabi to find availability.
Where does Power of M take place?
Students schedule a time to stay with their teachers after school on a designated Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday. If a student needs bus transportation home, they must be signed up on the bus list by their teacher by 3:00 each afternoon. The Media Center resources are also available for students’ use during this time.
