The Freshman Transition Network

Working together to transition freshmen & transform schools from the bottom up!

I just wanted to share that we have only tried the freshman transition approach for nine weeks. At the end of our first grading period, we only had four students in our academy with any failing grades. We have 193 students in the freshman class, and while the freshman class comprises 28% of the school's populations, we only comprised 15% of the in-school suspension referrals. Many of our freshman in-school suspension referrals were not for discipline issues, but for those who did not attend our amnesty afternoon for our ZAP policy; therefore, they must attend ISS the next day to eliminate their 0's. We are excited about the success so far, but we continue to plan to ensure future success.
