for remediation, (d) whether the proposal will implement an early childhood program
pursuant to section eighteen-c, article five of this chapter, (e) whether the proposal
will implement a beginning teacher assistance program, (f) whether the school has
probationary or nonapproval accreditation status, and, (g) how the program will be
