Think back to high
school…
 What subjects did you struggle with?
 To get extra help, what were your
options?
 Before or after school
 During lunch
 How well did that work?
 Probably not great. Sometimes it might
have worked but not always.
 That’s the case for many students.
How about joining a club?
 Same problem…before or after school.
 In the past we have worked to find the
correct fit for our students yet some
continued to struggle.
How did you feel?
 Not understanding and falling farther and
farther behind is just frustrating.
 After a while, you just give up.
 “Why should I go? I’m going to fail
anyway!”
Let’s put the time in the
school day!
 It seems so obvious but
not so much…
RETEACH
 30-minutes at the beginning of the day.
8:00-8:30
 Each week, all high school students are given
a quiz over the learning from that week.
 Students who receive a D or F on their English
and Math quiz are assigned to work with their
teachers to review activities, homework, etc
then retake the quiz to show they understand
the material.
Why only English and
Math?
 This is a big change for our students and
staff.
 English and Math are two of the gateway
subjects for other areas.
 They are also the two subjects where
students struggle the most.
 We will add other subjects as we feel
more confident in the structure.
Why only English and
Math?
 Students who are showing more
significant problems in other classes may
be assigned to work with their teachers.
 When this happens, students will be
expected to attend.
 We want them to be successful!
What can unassigned
students do?
 We have assigned each grade to specified locations.
 9th-L bldg testing, 10th-commons, 11th-auditorium, and
12th-Olas ki.
 In the near future, we want to start clubs and
organizations meeting and students can work in the AP
study halls.
 3rd quarter, 10th graders will be focusing on AIMS test
prep.
 Students may also work with other teachers.
 Use this time for doctor or dentist appointments
 WE HAVE THE TIME. NO MORE EXCUSES.
What else?
 Students must be in their RETEACH class, with
another teacher, or their grade assigned
location during this time.
 Students on campus who are not in one of
these areas will be subject to consequences.
 Students who are not assigned to RETEACH
that drive to school or are dropped off by their
parents may arrive later to start at 8:30
 THIS IS VALUABLE TIME! LET’S USE IT!
FAQ’s

organizations? Yes-2nd quarter.
