PROBLEM

Our students are not transitioning to selective high schools.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Motivate students to take the selective enrollment exam?

SOLUTION

Beidler’s solution incorporated incentives for students to apply to selective enrollment high schools, parent/teacher meetings to bridge the information gap, and refocused work in the classroom to keep students on track for selective enrollment eligibility.
