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 at these critical ages. They will need much support to understand the curriculum, and help with their technological skills. Remember that they have to do the work, and you are there as a support or facilitator only. • 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: Mentoring: 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. 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. Tutoring HoursTuesday and Thursday: 12:30 p.m.-3:00 p.m. If you need additional times or support please contact our office and this will be arranged. Mrs. Cindy Staples K-8 Mentor Testing: ACE Academy Testing• Per the state of Ohio, all students enrolled in a community school are required to be tested in reading and math each year. Testing will be setup at a later date and must be attended. If your child does not attend, this can lead to their dismissal from the program. Statewide Testing• Each year students in grades 3-8 are required to take the Ohio Achievement Assessments in the Spring, usually in April. • 3rd graders also take the Reading OAA in October • 3rd-8th graders all take Reading and Math and depending on the year some will take Writing 3rd Grade Guarantee• Ohio's Third Grade Guarantee ensures that every struggling reader gets the support he or she needs to be able to learn and achieve. • Students in grades K-3, will be evaluated in reading in the Fall. If a child appears to be falling behind in reading, the school will immediately start a reading improvement plan. That needs to be supported by the parent, and progress reports will be sent home quarterly. • There will be mandatory tutoring on Tuesdays from 12:30 p.m-3:00 p.m. for any student who is not on track. • Any student who is not on track the end of their third grade year will be retained.
