I teach Continuation High School, so students are recovering credits.
I would definitely look into the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) which is a framework which allows teachers to plan for a large variability of learners in the same learning environment. There are many guidelines which will help you to manage and engage your class.
You could also examine a flipped classroom model that flips back and forth. For example, your geometry students could be working on a collaborative project or watching a video, doing an online assessment, etc... while you actively work with your algebra students modeling lessons, providing mastery-oriented feedback, etc... Then, when algebra students are ready to apply the principles in independent work, you can instruct the geometry students. Allow the model to flip back and forth. (:

Having students work in small groups with their subject will help a lot too, so you can focus on each group at a time. Having worksheets that have some scaffolding for new concepts can help too so students can try to work on their own as your circle around the room.
