Tutoring/Study Skills

Weekly Tutorial

Weekly TUTORIAL offers students the opportunity to acquire extra curricular help during the regular school day. Students must attend tutorial four times per week (Tuesday through Friday), and attendance is taken the same as for traditional classes. Students must attend an assigned tutorial, except for days labeled Student Choice, which provides them with a choice of which of their classes to attend.  Tutorial is a built-in intervention for all students that should be utilized to the fullest. Tutorial is not a time for teachers to present new material; however a teacher may conduct a whole-class review for an upcoming test or students can make up tests during this 35 minute period.  A review the semester tutorial schedule can be found on our website under School Life/Bell and Daily Block Schedules.
