Academic Support Process Larry A. Ryle High School PURPOSE To provide a whole school response to struggling students. To increase communication between all stakeholders. To provide needed assistance to students who need additional time/support for learning. To reduce the number of failing students. To reduce the number of students who are retained.
Academic Support Process 1.What do we want students to learn? 2.How will we know if students have learned it? 3.What will we do if they don’t learn it? 4.What will we do if they already know it? Introduction: This is a support process that is on a continuum to monitor student progress at intervals of every three weeks. At every three week period, school personnel will evaluate student progress and begin the process of intervention according to the student’s place on the continuum. When a student moves from failing to passing the intervention begins at the beginning stages. The intervention takes place during our Raider Achievement Program Time (R.A.P.). Larry A. Ryle High School
Academic Support Process II. Three week mark of grading period Teachers Expectation - Communicate personally with student. Teacher makes parent contact (phone, email or letter) and recommends tutoring in R.A.P. designated room. Teacher may recommend mandatory tutoring during R.A.P if they deem it necessary at this time. Teacher records contact and referral in Infinite Campus. (If recommending mandatory, teacher must also fill out triplicate form to be turned into appropriate administrator.) Administration Expectation- Guidance Secretary will provide list of all students who are failing at this progress report interval to the appropriate administrator. Voluntary tutoring teachers will maintain an attendance folder for use by administrators upon request. At the end of each week, the voluntary tutoring teachers will forward an electronic attendance list of students who have attended the R.A.P voluntary tutoring to the administrator in charge of program (Mr. Niemi).
