Where each person has ability, dignity, worth and an equal right to develop their potential for a full and meaningful life

Academic Lab

  • Four days per week.
  • Focus on academic intervention and extension.

Students are selected for Ac Lab in two ways:

  1. Locked into a multi-week group at the beginning of each intervention cycle.
  2. Selected by the requesting teacher in IC at least one day ahead of the attending session.

Staff Expectations for Student Selection

  1. Maintain two locked groups (either intervention or extension) during each intervention cycle.
  2. Select a reasonable number of students for days in which your locked groups are not meeting.
  3. Have all selections entered at least one day prior to the day of the session.
  4. Maintain an academic focus during all sessions.

Students who are not selected (through participation in a locked group or individual teacher request) will be placed into Study Hall the morning of that Ac Lab session.

Four "Data Days" will be held throughout the school year in order to determine locked intervention and extension groups.
