RTI: Response to Intervention
Every Tuesday and Thursday time is set aside for students to attend reteaching seminars, enrichment activities, or study halls. Students need to sign up online before 10pm on Wednesday the week before the RTI sessions begin.
Grades are currently available online. They are updated daily. Check frequently to track student progress throughout the year. If there are any problems with access to the online Aeries system, please contact the front office of the school.
In each class, assignments are divided into different categories. Each category makes up a percentage of the overall grade in the course. Different categories carry different weight. Therefore, some assignments are worth more than others. The weight and categories may change from quarter to quarter as the year progresses. Below is the current category breakdown.

Students receive two assignment passes at the beginning of each quarter and they are valid for the rest of the school year. These passes may be submitted in place of any assignment up to 25 points (unless otherwise specified by the teacher) within seven days of the due date. These passes are intended to be used when students have difficulty completing assignments due to unforeseen events or situations. Use them wisely.
