Retaining a student (or not) can change the trajectory of a student’s life for better or for worse. Is there a “right” decision when considering retention or promotion? And if so, how do we make it? At this Lunch & Learn, Collaborative Specialist Ali Apfel will discuss evidence-based pros and cons of grade level retention, talk about factors beyond academics and the importance of seeing a child holistically, and explore a tool that can be used in tandem with schools’ decision making criteria for student promotion.
