The students we serve - minority, low-income and the first in their families to go to college - are the most likely to end up in remedial classes in college. A report from the Colorado Community College System found less than 5 percent of students who start in remedial classes will ever complete a college degree.
The Early Remediation Project
In fall 2011, we launched the Early Remediation Project in two middle schools near Denver. In 2013-14, up to 1,300 students in grades 8, 9 and 10 will enroll in classes mirroring the remedial math and English sequences taught on Colorado campuses.
Benefits for our students:
As our students successfully complete remedial courses, our partners at Adams State University document that success on transcripts.
The transcripts prove our students have completed remedial classes, meaning they won't have to take them again in college.
Our students use the transcripts to enroll in credit-bearing college courses as early as grade 10, via dual enrollment opportunities.
