Academic Elective Information

Academic elective is NOT a "homework class." Students are expect to do/try to do homework at home for practice. If there is a concept or some work that they do not understand we will have some time in class to remediate and work through problems on classwork or homework. We also work on strengthening skills identified on students' goals from their IEP, in addition to career/college exploration & transition plan activities. Progress monitoring on IEP goals and accommodations on tests (extra time) from students' content classes are also handled in Academic Elective.

I require a planner either on paper, notebook or your own technology device: something where our scholars can write down/take picture of/text what their work is in each of their classes.

This is a class that students are expected to work to improve skills and get the assistance they need. If you have any questions please email me.

You are REQUIRED to join my Google classroom at the code below. If you are absent, sick or quarintined, you need to log in and submit a Check-in Google forms assignment. This will be your participation for that day and let me know what you are working on at home that day and what you need help with and we can arrange a check-in time.

Also I need you to join my Remind. It might be the quickest way for me to get notification that you need help with something while you are at home and we can set up a class or a one-on-one, Google meet, or email with help/resources.
