Ongoing School Improvement Goals 1.Increase the number of proficient 10th grade students in Reading, Writing, & Math 2.Improve the attendance rate 3.Reduce (Eliminate) the number of failing grades 4.Increase the graduation rate 5.Increased opportunities for community stakeholder input
Think back to high school… What subjects did you struggle with? To get extra help, what were your options? Before or after school During lunch How well did that work? Probably not great. Sometimes it might have worked but not always. That’s the case for many students.
How about joining a club? Same problem…before or after school. In the past we have worked to find the correct fit for our students yet some continued to struggle.
How did you feel? Not understanding and falling farther and farther behind is just frustrating. After a while, you just give up. “Why should I go? I’m going to fail anyway!”
Let’s put the time in the school day! It seems so obvious but not so much…
RETEACH 30-minutes at the beginning of the day. 8:00-8:30 Each week, all high school students are given a quiz over the learning from that week. Students who receive a D or F on their English and Math quiz are assigned to work with their teachers to review activities, homework, etc then retake the quiz to show they understand the material.
Why only English and Math? This is a big change for our students and staff. English and Math are two of the gateway subjects for other areas. They are also the two subjects where students struggle the most. We will add other subjects as we feel more confident in the structure.
Why only English and Math? Students who are showing more significant problems in other classes may be assigned to work with their teachers. When this happens, students will be expected to attend. We want them to be successful!
What can unassigned students do? We have assigned each grade to specified locations. 9th-L bldg testing, 10th-commons, 11th-auditorium, and 12th-Olas ki. In the near future, we want to start clubs and organizations meeting and students can work in the AP study halls. 3 rd quarter, 10 th graders will be focusing on AIMS test prep. Students may also work with other teachers. Use this time for doctor or dentist appointments WE HAVE THE TIME. NO MORE EXCUSES.
What else? Students must be in their RETEACH class, with another teacher, or their grade assigned location during this time. Students on campus who are not in one of these areas will be subject to consequences. Students who are not assigned to RETEACH that drive to school or are dropped off by their parents may arrive later to start at 8:30 THIS IS VALUABLE TIME! LET’S USE IT!
FAQ’s If I’m not assigned to a RETEACH class and I drive myself of my parent drops me off, can I come to school by 8:30? YES. Please plan on getting to school around 8:20 Can I get help from my teachers even though I didn’t get assigned to RETEACH? YES. Will we be able to meet with clubs or other organizations? Yes-2 nd quarter. What if I am assigned to RETEACH in both English and Math? Work with your two teachers and write it in your planner.
