During the fourth nine weeks they will be enrolled in all elective courses. At the end of the school year your child should earn a total of six credits. If your child comes to us and only needs certain courses we will work with you, so they can finish as soon as the courses are complete. • If the coursework is not completed by Saturday at 11:59 p.m., you will get a message in the course management system letting you know that your child needs to attend the mandated tutoring that week. Students will then enter into their Google Drive account and sign themselves up for a specific tutoring time. • Students will meet weekly with their teacher to discuss concerns, questions, group work, mini-lessons, and parent-teacher conferences (once a year, or per teacher or parent request). • Parents need to be very active in their child’s education, so they are successful. • Please make sure you are in constant communication with your child’s teacher and ACE office staff, as we want to make this experience the best they’ve had. Onsite Supports: Tutoring: Is an option for all K-12 students. There are specific times that are available for grade levels. Tutoring is an option for those students who want to come in and get additional help on a lesson, or who just want to come in and work with others. If you are mandated because you didn’t get your work completed for the week then you must attend at least one of the tutoring sessions and get caught up on all work. Tutoring Hours- 8:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. All students will be assigned to a highly qualified staff member who will work to: communicate with his/her teachers, families, student, and monitor the status of the student, be the contact person who will answer any questions, concerns, etc. Wednesday: Miss Tracy Jacoby HS Mentor Tuesday-Thursday: 12:30 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Mentoring: If you need additional times or support please contact our office and this will be arranged.
