Participating students will have the opportunity to earn 7 - 15 transcripted college credits!

  • Bell Schedule2020

    We are piloting a new bell schedule and new SSP model. Anchor SSP times are required for all students to attend and work through lessons. Flex SSP times are designed to provide academic interventions or enrichments. Each week the PowerSchool Grade Reports will be reviewed by SSP teachers. Students with no Ds or Fs will be able to use the Flex SSP time for enrichment studies, extended lunches, etc. for that week. Students who have low grades will be required to attend their regular SSPs that week for the concentrated academic advisory to help students improve their weekly grades.  Students who have Cs or better in all classes may elect to still attend their regular SSP during the Flex SSP time in order to receive additional supports if the students choose.
