After School Program (ASP) in Jr. High

How does the After School Program work at the Junior High Schools?

The ASP program offers a variety of classes either before or after school.  A student has the opportunity to earn credits each quarter for regularly attending an intervention class and earning a passing grade.  Another purpose of the ASP classes is to give students who are in need of extra support.  The tutoring program is not only an academic support for both 7th and 8th graders, but it is also designed to give 8th grade students the opportunity for credit recovery. The credits are used towards promotion.

  Please contact the school directly, as dates/times and courses may differ from site to site.
