Preparing High School Seniors for College-Level Work

In Tennessee, nearly 70% of college freshmen are required to take remedial courses in math, English, or both before they are qualified to take college-level courses. Seamless Alignment and Integrated Support (SAILS) integrates the Tennessee Board of Regents learning support competencies and the Tennessee Department of Education Academic Standards, allowing at-risk high school seniors to complete all remediation requirements while still in high school and begin their college career prepared for credit-bearing coursework. During the 2015-2016 school year, the SAILS English used NROC English as a key component of the course. This case study details their results.
