Rewards: Students will also have positive behavioral support. Students who maintain appropriate behavior throughout the day and/or students caught being a model student may earn privileges or recognition. They may earn free time during study hall such as computer time or another activity of choice. Students may also have their parent notified by phone or e-mail about their exceptional behavior.
Homework: Typically, students will complete the majority of their homework in a support study hall but not always. Students will have weekly spelling words, and are expected to be reading independently for 20 minutes four times a week. They will take AR reading tests monthly to monitor completion of a minimum of one book per month. Students may have to finish math problem sets if they aren’t completed during class time. Students may also have projects and assignments in their elective classes.
Unfinished homework will result in working lunch or After School Tutoring (AST) until the assignment is completed. Parental support is very helpful to encourage your child to take responsibility and pride in their homework. You may also want to sign up for the School Tool Parent Portal to view your students’ grades and see if they have any missing assignments.
Assessment: Students will be assessed through curriculum based assessments, rubrics, oral interviews/conferencing, recorded observation, projects, activities, writing portfolios, quizes, and tests.
