The Granton School District believes that a successful education experience is determined by three key factors:
- Academic Performance
- Good Citizenship
- Good Attendance
In order to encourage responsibility in our students, we have different academic support services in place to help students who are struggling.
Below is a list of services that are offered:
Zeroes Aren't Permitted (ZAP) -- 6th-10th Grade: Students are assigned to the ZAP program during their lunch period when they have missing work. The students will eat lunch and work on their missing assignments in a supervised setting. For more information, click here.
Response to Intervention (RTI)/ Enrichment Period -- Middle and High School: During this time, if students are struggling in specific classes, teachers are able to give focused attention to students to help them better understand the lessons learned in class. For students not in intervention time, they meet with a different teacher each day to learn something new, from safety tips to the responsibility of being a pet owner. This gives students the opportunity to learn about something different in school, work together and think about learning in a different way. For more RTI information, click here to visit the Granton RTI Handbook.
Student Privilege Card System -- Middle and High School: Students will be awarded a Student Privilege Card when they meet the specific school goals. By meeting these goals students will be eligible for privileges corresponding to their specific grade level. Students are eligible for the Privilege Card when they meet the following criteria:
- C's or better in all classes
- One or fewer behavior referrals
- Two or fewer tardies, zero unexcused absences, and 4 or fewer excused absences
As you can see these are the student goals set at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.
We are very excited about these programs and how they can help impact our students' growth towards a successful educational experience within the Granton School District.
