Provide academic support and enrichment to improve academic performance.
Academic supports help improve academic performance and reengage students in school. Schools can offer academic support by providing extra study time, targeted interventions to address gaps in math and literacy, homework assistance, tutoring, and opportunities for credit recovery. Classes can be offered in test-taking skills and study skills. Research has shown that providing academic support helps address skill gaps and offset cycles of frustration. It can also enrich the academic experience for students who are bored or disengaged by offering ways to see connections across classes. Schools can analyze such data as course completion, credit accumulation, and attendance to design an academic support program to meet the needs of its students. It is important to consider providing additional supports such as adult advocates and targeted social-emotional programs to support potential underlying causes for failure such as feeling alienated from school.
