Students placed at Rowley are expected to show growth both behaviorally and academically in order to return to their district school. This growth is tracked through the Daily Tracker which is sent home to parents every Friday. Teachers either email or call parents/guardians on a regular basis to keep them informed of the students’ academic and behavioral progress. The Daily Tracker and the communication home are two of the main indicators to a parent/guardian that a student is progressing towards exiting or is not progressing successfully to be considered for exiting.
In addition to the Daily Tracker and communication between home and school, the following is a consolidated list of the requirements that the Administration reviews when considering eligibility for a student’s return to a district school :
Students placed at Rowley are allowed to return to the district school at semester break (January) or at the beginning of the following school year. Students on an IEP (SPED) or MDR (504) placement will be allowed to return to the district school with an 80% average on the Daily Tracker ; full attainment of the goals set in the IEP or with the Administration ; time met as indicated in the IEP or MDR.
All questions regarding placement should be addressed to the Principal.
