Get F.I.T. and Ready for the EOY’s!

F.I.T. stands for Focused Instructional Time and we have reserved this time during second semester starting on January 18th to help prepare you for your End of Year Course Exams! Remember, the EOY exams are how you earn points towards Graduation. (For more information about graduation requirements, click HERE and HERE.)

Teachers will be using this time to review missing concepts from class time, go over practice problems, and help students become familiar with the online tools needed to take these tests. Recordings will be made available for students who cannot attend.

Keep in mind that these sessions cannot replace daily work in your LMS classes and attendance at ClassConnect sessions for success on these tests. This is merely meant to supplement and reinforce. They are optional, but recommended.
