Academic Intervention Program (ASP) in Jr. High
How does the Academic Intervention Program work at the Junior High Schools?
The ASP program offers classes after school in Algebra, Pre-Algebra, 7th grade language arts and 8th grade language arts. The classes last for 1 ½ hours after school. The first half-hour is time students spend working on their homework and to get assistance from the teacher. The final hour is class instruction.
The ASP classes are designed for two purposes: the first purpose is for credit recovery. A student may earn 2.5 credits each quarter for regularly attending an after school class and earning a passing grade. The credits are used towards graduation. The second purpose of the AIP classes is to give students who are in need of extra assistance in the current Pre-algebra, algebra, or language arts class.
Blaker-Kinser Junior High School only: homework club is available from Tuesday through Friday (2:30 – 3:30). Students are given a quiet place to work with the support of a classroom teacher.
Summer School runs at Mae Hensley, Blaker-Kinser and Cesar Chavez Junior High Schools. It is a 4 week program that provides a student the opportunity to earn 5 credits towards promotion to the next grade level.
