Our students are not transitioning to selective high schools.
HOW MIGHT WE…

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.
