Afternoon Academic Support
Afternoon Academic Support Sessions
As part of the 2020-2021 school year scheduling scenarios, District 211 schools are offering students the opportunity to participate in additional learning experiences called Afternoon Academic Support. Afternoon Academic Support provides students with access to specific course assistance, small group tutoring, and, when possible, hands-on laboratory experiences. Every academic department has developed learning experiences to support the courses offered. The supports will be offered virtually and, when possible, in-person at school.
Some support options are general in nature, such as math tutoring labs, reading and writing support, or quiet study areas. Other supports are specific to selected courses that include specialized content and may include access to science labs or the use of specialized manufacturing equipment. Department-specific experiences will be offered Monday through Thursday during the afternoon block noted on each student’s daily class schedule.
A variety of Afternoon Academic Support sessions begin Monday, August 24. Most experiences will be hosted virtually; however, some opportunities for in-person academic support also will be available. Starting Monday, August 24, in-person Afternoon Academic Support sessions will be available for Career Technical Educations classes (business, family, and consumer sciences and applied technology departments), along with ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. Additional in-person opportunities are planned to begin in the upcoming weeks.
Afternoon Academic Support sessions will have a limited number of available seats. Students must schedule appointments for all afternoon sessions, both virtual and in-person, using SignUpGenius, an online appointment scheduling system.
