“RISE FROM THE ASHES”


MBAS: Academic Assist

If any student is performing below 80% in any core class, he/she will be required to attend Academic Assist from 10:10-10:50. Within that time frame, the student will participate in tuoring while complete missing or failing assignments.

If any student is performing above 80% in each class, he/she will be rewarded by attending the cafeteria during Academic Assist for extra-curricular activities.


Level 1 Discipline: Extended Day

Please review the Student Handbook for additional information concerning all levels of discipline.

 

Level 1: If a student acquires a 5-Point Day, he/she will be placed on Extended Day. This means the student will be required to stay after school from 2:30-3:45 and complete assignments from his/her scheduled classes. The student will remain on Extended Day for 10 consecutive "Good" days (no more than 2 points lost each day). Once the Extended Day placement is completed, the student will return to his/her regular schedule of 7:30-2:30.
