ICU: Where every student completes every assignment, EVERY DAY!
What is ICU? ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit, just like in a hospital. ICU is an academic support system for students and a communication tool for teachers. All students completing all assignments is the foundation of this program. Students learn quickly that if they have one missing or poor-quality assignment, their grade is sick and needs attention.
Staff members re-teach content material and provide students with extra assistance to complete their work during ICU at lunch/recess. Names are removed from the ICU list when assignments are completed and quality work has been achieved.
It is crucial that parents, teachers, and administrators are all on the same page and convey the message that “Every student will complete every assignment every day,” and at the highest quality level each individual child can achieve.
If your child’s name is placed on the ICU List:
Your child will be given an opportunity to complete the assignment during his/her ICU period.
If the work remains unfinished, additional arrangements may become necessary for your child to complete the assignment.
We look forward to helping your child master the academic content they need to be prepared for post-secondary endeavors.
