SUCCESS STORY

Changes in instructional practices build momentum for student success in science

Kendrick High School, Columbus, Georgia

 

Facing many challenges, Kendrick High School in Columbus, Georgia, was designated as a school in need of improvement three years in a row. The school applied for and received a School Improvement Grant. Part of the grant was used to fund professional development for the Science Department, with the goals of changing instructional practices, adopting data-analysis processes, and instituting more collaboration among teachers and administrators. In the three years since the school improvement plan was initiated, passing rates for end-of-course tests have increased in biology and physical science.
