Academic Supports

  • Student Planners: Students are given planners at the beginning of the year to keep track of their homework assignments. Student planners also contain valuable information like student expectations and school policies. If your student is having trouble remembering to complete or turn in assignments, check their planners regularly and encourage them to write down their homework assignments for each class every day. 
  • Homelink: Many teachers regularly update student grades and record completed assignments on Homelink. Students and parents can sign in to get access to this online gradebook.
  • Google Classroom: Many teachers post assignments, class notes, and more using Google Classroom.
  • Online Textbooks: Some class subjects have online textbooks that include an audio option and/or links to explanations and helpful examples. 
  • IXL: Students can practice online Math lessons geared toward their individual skill level using IXL. Some students also have access to IXL lessons in English Language skills.
  • Help for Struggling Students: Crunch Time

Homework Club: Every Tuesday and Thursday, 2:15-3:15pm

Teachers: Many classroom teachers routinely give suggestions about organization and study habits. Some also set aside time to work with students who need extra help. Contact your student's teacher early if you notice your student is struggling.

School Counselors: School counselors meet with students individually or in groups to help them improve their organizational and study skills to meet their academic goals.
