Academic Support

An academic assistance program has been implemented in an effort to improve student performance. Any faculty member can recommend a student for academic support. In addition, any student interested in using academic support to study or complete assignments may attend on a voluntary basis. This program will take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:25-11:25 and after school Monday through Thursday from 2:30-3:30. The program focuses on raising student expectations, improving student achievement/ motivation and increasing the success rate in all subject areas. Students will remain on academic support until performance improves as determined by the subject area teacher.

Important Policy Change -- There is to be no talking during the first 30 minutes of the Academic Support period. During the second half of the Academic Support period students make speak quietly; the teacher has the right to regulate the noise level in the room.
