Academic Assistance Tutorial Program Together We Succeed Academic Assistance Tutorial Program The Academic Tutorial Assistance Program is designed to provide additional academic assistance for those students who did not demonstrate mastery with AKS objectives for a specific nine weeks of study in any core academic subject. This program allows students to receive a replacement grade of 70 for the failing grade if the attendance and class criteria are met for the tutorial program. If a student is identified as at-risk academically, he/she may be referred to the program for remediation. The tutorial program allows students to receive eighteen hours of instruction during the course of twelve sessions. Students are able to receive academic assistance that is remedial in nature yet, engaging for students’ success. ATTENDANCE CRITERIA Students who attend the program must meet the attendance and program criteria. Students are allowed one absence (three tardies are equivalent to one absence) during the instructional sessions. Students are not granted excused absences for attending field trips and other school sponsored events during tutorial hours. Those students who incur more than one absence will only be able to receive the services for remediation and not for a grade change. There can be no exception to this policy. What is the Academic Tutorial Assistance Program? PROGRAM OVERVIEW CLASS CRITERIA The classes are designed to offer small group instruction. Classes normally have up to fifteen students per teacher. Students who attend the tutorial program must meet the class criteria as designed by the program. It is essential that students complete assignments and assessments as well as demonstrate improvement and mastery of applicable AKS in the tutorial program while passing a post-test. Assessment is an ongoing process throughout the instructional sessions. A mid-session progress report will be sent to parents after nine hours of work have been completed. A progress report will be generated to the students at the conclusion of the instructional sessions. Students who successfully demonstrate improvements with AKS objectives as well as meet attendance criteria will receive a grade revision. This change will be reflected on an updated progress report that will be generated and sent home to the parents within 2 weeks of session completion.
