Support Programs


Academic Assistance

Academic Assistance (AA) is an after school tutor session where students have the opportunity to get additional help in their courses.  Students can retake tests to improve grades only after participating in Academic Assistance.  Each student is expected to attend AA as long as the student's grade average is below 80 in any class or if the student has made less than 80 on a major assignment.

Academic Assistance takes priority over all other activities including club meetings, athletic events or practices.

Students are responsible for making transportation arrangements when attending AA.  Students who know that they will miss an assigned Academic Assistance session must notify their teacher.  If the absence is excused, AA may be rescheduled at the earliest convenience.
