Starting the School Year Strong

Starting strong can be a great way to set yourself up for success. Here are a few tips for starting the year off strong.


  • Communicate with your Teacher of Record regularly.
  • Schedule when you will complete schoolwork each day.
  • Learn actively. Take notes and complete activities and assessments.
  • Advocate for yourself. Contact your teacher as often as you need help.
  • Set goals and celebrate reaching them.


Attendance


  • You are expected to complete schoolwork each day that school is in session.
  • Talk with your teacher about creating a schedule that works for you.

INSTRUCTION

Student Pacing in Courses


  • By now, you should have communicated with your Teacher of Record what pace you want to set for yourself:
  • One class per Learning Period (LP) or
  • A more traditional pace of 5-6 classes per semester.
  • Both options will keep students on pace to graduate.
  • If you haven't had this conversation yet with your Teacher of Record, do so now. They can help you create a pacing schedule to fit your individual needs.

School Culture and Support

Student Engagement


  • Student engagement is the backbone of our school culture. Get to know your teacher. Share your goals and hobbies. Ask for ways to get involved.
  • Your Teacher of Record can tailor the curriculum to your interests.
  • If you have not had a one-on-one meeting with your Teacher of Record yet, reach out and schedule one today!


Possibility Project


  • If you are over the age of 18, within 30 credits of graduating, and are interested in on-the-job training and job opportunities, talk to your teacher about the Possibility Project.
  • This includes the possibility of paid, on-the-job training opportunities.
