NORWICH – Behavioral and academically “at-risk” teens don’t become that way overnight. At Norwich High School, these issues are being identified as a continuous concern, officials said.
The issues surrounding the performance and teaching strategy for at-risk high school students are being addressed every semester by school administrators. Assistant Principal Patricia Giltner and Principal Thomas Knapp presented inprovements at Tuesday night’s board meeting.
Knapp said they’ve come up with a more intensive plan to begin tracking students who show difficulties before they enter the high school. He said if they are struggling in one building, it is almost a guarantee they will struggle in the next.
