Cossatot River High School has launched the “Power of ICU” program that hopes to keep students on track with their assignments. ICU is an academic support system for students and a communication tool for teachers and parents that is built around a school-wide electronic database that tracks missing assignments. “All students completing all assignments is the foundation of this program,” said school officials.
Through the program, students and parents can quickly learn if they are missing assignments, have poor quality assignments, or if their grade is sick and needs attention. Students with missing assignments will have their name added to an ICU list that can be viewed by all staff members. Students will be asked by those staff members questions, such as: Who do you owe? What do you owe? What do you need? How can I help?
Staff members will also re-teach content material and provide students with extra assistance to complete their work before school, during lunch, after school, etc. Students names will be removed from the ICU list when assignments are completed and quality work has been done.
Officials stated, “It is crucial that parents, teachers, and administrators are all on the same page and convey the message that ‘All students will complete all assignments and do quality work.’”
If a child’s name is placed on the ICU list, the parent will receive a text and/or and email message; the child will be given the opportunity to complete the assignment; and if the work remains incomplete, additional arrangements may become necessary such as coming in before school, working during lunch, or staying after school.
