Extended Day

The extended day program is an after school tutoring program staffed by teachers and paraprofessionals to help students pass their classes and earn credits needed for graduation. Program staff will track grades of participating students and provide help based on each individual student’s needs. Staff will work with students to reinforce lessons taught in the classroom. The focus will be to help students complete homework, catch up on missing/late work, and/or study for upcoming tests/ quizzes.

Eligibility:

Any student who meets one requirement below may apply for tutoring:

Has any D or F’s in any classes.

Absent more than 5 days in a 9-week grading period.

Program Information & Expectations

Extended day students meet after school from 3:00-4:00 PM. We start by providing each student with a snack.

Extended Day instructors use the time to track grades and reinforce classroom learning. Students complete homework, catch up on make up work, and/or study for upcoming tests and quizzes.

Students must attend twice a week: Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday.

Bus transportation is provided!

Program Guidelines

Spaces are filled on a first come, first served basis.

If the program is full, the student will be placed on a waiting list.

The student and guardian will be notified the date on which the student will begin Extended Day. We must wait until we have a sufficient enrollment to begin offering the program.

Once registered, students must attend tutoring on a regular basis, just like a class. *Tutoring is not voluntary!

If a student is ill, she/he must notify the tutor or program coordinator via email, note, or phone (cgnehm@ep309.org or 694-8359).

Students will be removed from the program if:

  • they have 3 or more unexcused absences
  • they have 5 absences of any kind
  • they receive a third tardy (not bringing work to Extended Day will be considered a tardy)
  • they receive two discipline referrals while attending extended day
