NEW ACADEMIC RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS
This will take place on Mondays and Fridays for approximately forty minutes. Academic Resource (AR) is designed to give students timely support in an individualized setting. Students will be paired with teachers that can assist them in their work, help with difficult concepts, and allow for mastery of content. Juniors and Seniors will have an opportunity to use this time as they see fit as long as they are meeting expectations with regard to grades, attendance, and behavior. Through this intervention time, we are committed to increasing academic achievement during the school day.
NEW ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES
New this year the district has implemented a procedure that will increase attendance. High school students whose attendance falls below 90% in one semester will receive a percentage deduction by course. If the student or parent feels that justifiable or extraordinary circumstances have contributed to not attaining the 90% threshold, the student and parent may appeal to the Attendance Review Committee. It is strongly suggested that all proper documentation to support an appeal be kept to help with the success of each appeal. To view more detailed information about this click here!
