- Utah Annotated Code §53A-13-104 requires school districts to offer remedial classes for students in grades 7-12. The Board delegates to the District Administration responsibility for devising and implementing an adequate system of remediation so that students can meet competency levels in all required core subject areas.
- The Board authorizes the Superintendent and District Administration to establish administrative regulations consistent with this policy.
Remediation Classes for Core Courses - 600.10-1
It will be the responsibility of the School Performance Directors to work with principals to ensure that all students are given adequate instruction to meet competency levels in all subject areas.
- Meeting competency in all required core class will be defined as receiving a “D” grade or better in the class. Any student who receives an “F” in an English, mathematics, science, or social studies required core class has failed to meet the competency level.
- Parents will be notified by letter if their student has not met competency in any class.
- Students who do not meet competency levels in required core classes–English, mathematics, science and social studies–will be required to take remediation classes.
- Students are not required to repeat a required core class when competency is not met but must attend and complete or pass the remediation class.
- Remediation classes will be offered in the after-school make-up program, in summer school, or through approved extension classes. Attendance in remedial classes is mandatory.
- The remediation classes will be structured to enable students to get 1/4 credit by successfully completing the remediation class.
- Fees will be charged for remediation classes according to the current fee schedule adopted by the Board of Education.
- Remediation may not constitute reason to retain a student in a grade level. Students who fail any of the required core classes will be allowed a probationary registration in the next higher grade while completing remediation classes. Students in grades 7 and 8 who fail core classes and elect not to register for remediation classes will be retained in their present grade. Students and parents may appeal this decision to a local school committee comprised of the following:
- School administrator
- The student’s counselor
- Teacher representative
- Two parent representatives
- Students in grades 9 to 12 will be evaluated as often as necessary to determine their progress toward graduation.
- Handicapped students will be exempted from remediation requirements if they are meeting IEP requirements.
- Transportation to and from remediation classes is the responsibility of students and parents.
- If a student does not pass a remediation class, the principal may waive the remediation requirement.
