Bee Time 3rd Trimester

Beliefs:

         All students can learn at high levels.

         Some students need additional instruction to achieve academic success.

         Intervention and additional help should be provided during the school day for those who need it and are willing to initiate it.          Enrichment is an opportunity for students who have mastered the content to extend their learning.

Bee Time for 3rd Trimester:

         Core classes will continue to have a priority day.  Non-core subjects will share a day.

          When referred to a core class and a non-core subject class on the same day, students must attend the core class.          Students will not sign up for a Bee Time class.  They will be referred by a teacher, sign up for a specialized class (example: Hosa Club), or enrichment class (example: book club), or seek out help from a teacher on their study hall day

.          There will be two kinds of classes during Bee Time – Closed Sessions and Open Sessions.

        Closed Sessions:

 o   Teachers refer students on their priority day based on formative assessments to re-teach a specific skill -- targeted intervention.  (All students in this type of a  closed session need help with the same skill.)  Only referred students can attend.

o   A teacher advertises an enrichment activity.  (Example:  Book Club.)        

 Open Sessions

o   Teachers refer students that are missing work or tests on a study hall day or students self-refer to make up work or tests.

o   Students choose to see one of their teachers for additional help.

o   Students who are not referred for a specific purpose or do not find a Bee Time class to attend will be required to go to the library or commons.

          Attendance will be taken in Closed Sessions.  Students will sign a roll in an Open Session.

 Goals:

         Additional instruction will be provided for struggling students to help them succeed.

         Students will use Bee Time to catch up on missed work or tests.

         Students will see Bee Time as an opportunity to get additional help and/or enrichment.

         Teachers will collaborate within their departments to coordinate and plan for student success in study halls and enrichment classes.

         We will work together to encourage students to develop self-regulation skills that will help them academically and into their future endeavors.
