An Academic Intervention Example

Schoolwide academic intervention programs can deliver remarkable results; however, implementation is not a simple task. An excellent example of a successful academic intervention program can be found at Minnetonka High School. Robb Virgin and Jeff Erickson recently shared how Minnetonka has implemented their proactive, schoolwide approach to interventions, changing the trajectory of struggling students before they fail and redirecting them toward academic success. Their intentional and just-in- time intervention approach has reduced failing grades by 33 percent.
