Each teacher conducts a Department Night each week from 2:20 to 3:20. The purposes of Department Nights are as follows:
- To provide an opportunity for students to obtain additional help in class work which they have been unable to master in the regular class time;
- To provide an opportunity for students who have been absent to make up lost work and examinations;
- To encourage pupils to accept responsibility of completing their tasks by giving them a definite schedule for meeting with teachers.
|Day of the Week||Department Night Schedule|
|Monday||Mathematics, Computer Science, Reading|
|Tuesday||Social Studies, Music, Foreign Language, Counseling, Special Education, School Psychologist, School Nurse, PE/Health|
|Wednesday||English, Art, Library|
|Thursday||Science, Agriculture, Energy & the Environment, BioMed, Mathematics|
Any student who has below a 70 average in a core subject MUST attend department night until an average of 70 or above is achieved. Students should look upon Department Nights as an opportunity extended to them to help with their school work. Under no circumstances should Department Night be regarded as punishment. Students are encouraged to attend voluntarily. Students who need extra help will be requested to stay by their teachers.
