Here’s a letter from a parent’s perspective regarding the ICU approach.
“As a parent and teacher, ICU has been a lifesaver in terms of helping our daughters learn to be accountable for their learning. Our school staff not only puts missing assignments or failing grades on the list, but extra practice is listed as well. Sometimes that extra practice is what helps them get to the next level of learning. When we get the text saying there is an item on the ICU list, we are able to visit with them about the assignment and see what their plan is for getting their name off the list.
