In our efforts to achieve our school mission of “helping ALL students be successful,” we have begun implementing a new intervention program this year. Teachers are available for intervention from 7:00-8:00 a.m. Tuesdays through Fridays. Mondays are reserved for teacher collaboration time.
The primary focus of the intervention time is to give teachers the opportunity to reteach concepts to students who may need extra help or support. A secondary focus of intervention time is for students to make up work they have missed. Every Monday, students receive a grade printout during their 5th/6th period class to let them know which classes they are either failing or may need extra help in. Students with F’s are expected to attend intervention that week with the teachers whose classes they are failing. Priority days are given to core subject areas: Tuesday is math priority, Wednesday is English priority, and Thursday is science priority. Fridays are open for all other subject areas. For example, if a student is failing math, s/he is expected to be in math intervention on Tuesday morning with his/her math teacher.
Before and after school tutoring is also available in the media center where qualified tutors can help students with homework any day of the week. Tutors are available at the following times:
- Monday – 7:30-8:00 a.m.
- Tuesday – Friday, 7:00-8:00 a.m.
- Monday – Thursday, 2:15-4:15 p.m. (with busses running at 4:20 p.m.)
Elective credit is being offered to students who attend the after-school program on a regular basis. Packet scholarships are also available to help students cover the cost of credit recovery.
So far we have been pleased with the number of students attending intervention. Classrooms and the media center are busy places in the morning, and we’re also getting a good turnout at our after-school tutoring programs. Please continue to check your grades and be sure to attend intervention as needed.
