"ZAP" stands for "Zeros Aren't Possible."
Goal: Establish a school-wide approach to handling missed assessment deadlines.
Who: Ms. Miller (High School) Ms. Sampson and Mr. Kane (Middle School)
Where: Upstairs classrooms
When: ZAP will take place during the student's lunch hour the next day
What: Students who do not turn in an assessment (formative or summative) on time may be "zapped." Note: If they do poorly on an assessment, they will re-do it during intervention, but if they do not do it at all, then they go to ZAP.
- Student receives a ZAP pass from their teacher.
- The next school day, the student picks up a lunch and takes it to the ZAP room during lunch.
- Student continues to attend ZAP during lunch until the assessment is complete.
- Assessment is turned in to the ZAP teacher- NOT the classroom teacher. The ZAP teacher will turn the assignment back to the classroom teacher for grading.
- ZAP instructors will keep track of student data (how often, what classes, how long they stay, etc.) and identify students who are ZAPPED multiple times for additional support.
*If a student is ZAPPED more than once by the same teacher, the teacher is asked to call home to let the parent know the student has been ZAPPED.
*Students who were absent will be given two days to get their missed assessments submitted before they can be ZAPPED.
