Academic Support

Academic Support

Students who are in need or want support in courses are offered a variety of help through the office of Academic Support.  Those students who are identified by teachers, parents or themselves are able to: Utilize the Extended Learning Center after school everyday until 4:00 pm Meet with teachers after school for remediation or help Request individual adjustments through our STEP/MAP program
 
When students are identified as needing additional academic support, whether or not related to a disability, a Support Team Educational Plan (STEP) or Minor Adjustment Plan (MAP) may be implemented. The support team may recommend minor educational adjustments based upon a student’s testing history, classroom work and teacher observations. Parents have the responsibility of providing all relevant history and data to provide best possible outcomes for the student and to properly assist in the STEP/MAP team evaluation.

  • Time for Time
     is designed to help a student grow in responsibility and maintain his/her assignments in a timely manner. “Time for Time” takes place with the teacher; therefore, teachers will inform a student when they will be available to fulfill the “Time for Time” commitment. Students who are not completing assignments will find this time useful in receiving the instruction and guidance they need to remain current with the course.
