Academic intervention ensures graduation for Floyd County Schools students
May 9, 2015 -- 9:05 a.m.
Thanks to the work of new Academic Interventionists, many students in the Floyd County School System, who otherwise would not have graduated this month, will walk across the stage with their peers.
This is the first year that Federal Title I funding has been used to pay for the interventionists at all Floyd County High Schools.
The Floyd County Board of Education recently heard a presentation about how the first year of Title I at the high school level is already paying dividends.
The interventionists, like Norma Williams at Pepperell, work with students who are in danger of not graduating.
“Right now at Pepperell High School we have 58 students that have recovered a total of 125 credits,” Williams said. “I’ve got seven seniors as well who are for sure going to walk across the stage and I have a couple more who are working really hard to make up those credits.”
Meanwhile, Sally Echols, the interventionist at Model High, shared the story of one student who has improved her attendance record.
“She had more than a hundred absences last year,” Echols said. “This year here attendance has improved since we set that standard. She knows that someone is holding her accountable.”
Talisa Chapman, who works with students at Armuchee High, said it’s challenging and rewarding work.
“A lot of tears,” she said. “We have two kids at Armuchee that I would have bet my paycheck when they were freshman that I would have never had the opportunity to see them walk across that stage. I had the privilege of calling their parents today to say ‘They are going to make it, so go ahead and send those invitations out!’”
Meanwhile, Beth Wade shared the stories of two Coosa High students.
“One of them is a senior and she will graduate,” Wade said. “She has already started college. The other one is working on her very last half-a-credit and she will finish and will not have to go to summer school. She will start her senior year on track.”
