Fort Stockton Middle School English teacher Zachary Jones:
In our first year of ICU, it took many weeks before we got the ball rolling. No one was really sure of how to use it. Then, we began to realize how to use the list. Aides and student tutors would assist the students with the assignments. Teachers would get the assignments back and check them in. If the work didn’t meet standard, the student remained on ICU until it was done correctly. No class time was lost working with these students, and students began turning their work in on time. The quality of the work began to improve, and the list of ICU students began to decline.
