All Gwinnett County students are required to pass language arts and math, as well as five of six academic courses to be eligible for end of year grade promotion. Northbrook Middle School will offer credit recovery for students who failed first semester courses. Students who need this credit recovery opportunity will be enrolled in the Academic Assistance Program (AAP), which will provide six weeks of instruction aligned to first semester curriculum standards. The purpose of the Academic Assistance Program is to provide students the opportunity to recover the necessary course credits for promotion. Students who successfully demonstrate mastery of the curriculum standards covered in AAP will earn a passing grade (70) for the course.
AAP for Math and Language Arts will be administered through Language Arts Remediation and Math Remediation courses. Students will receive direct instruction and guided practice during these Connections classes. Students will take AAP final exams on March 6th.
AAP courses for Science and Social Studies will be offered via Zoom sessions on Saturdays, January 23, 2021 through March 6, 2021, from 9-11 am. Students will receive direct instruction and guided practice via these Zoom sessions. The Zoom links for AAP can be accessed on the AAP teacher’s eClass course page and attendance is mandatory to earn the course credits necessary for promotion. Students will take AAP final exams on March 6th.
