Academic Supports at Conant
At Conant High School, we strive to provide academic support for all students, in order to enhance student success. While students are always encouraged to seek assistance from their academic teacher, a variety of resources are available for students seeking additional support.
Students work with their counselor to develop a personal academic plan based on their interests and goals. The counselor can also recommend other academic supports as needed. Administrators, counselors, psychologists, social workers, and support staff work hand-in-hand to personalize a student's academic supports.
General Study Hall
All students with a free period are assigned a General Study Hall where they can quietly do work or seek other academic supports in the intervention hallway.
Tutoring for various subjects is available throughout the school day. Students are able to drop in for extra support as needed to ensure academic success. The following table shows specific times and locations where these supports are available. Students are always encouraged to talk to their teachers about specific issues in their class.
Guided Study Hall
Students may be assigned to a Guided Study Hall. This study hall offers a smaller setting in which they may receive one-on-one guidance from a staff member. In addition, students will work to develop study, organizational, and other academic skills.
Athletic Study Hall
Student athletes may be assigned to a Guided Study Hall if their grades fall below the district standard. This study hall is designed to give your student athlete a quiet work environment and access to additional resources when needed.
Students identified through our search process or requesting training for the SAT may be assigned to our SAT Prep program. There they will receive additional strategies and materials in a smaller setting tailored to improve their test preparation.
Students participating in an AP course may be assigned to or request placement with an AP coach. Coaches are teachers of AP courses who guide students on improving their learning, organization, time management, and access to additional supports.
Learning Support Team (LST)
Each LST consists of an administrator, counselors, and psychologist/social worker, which provides one point for parents and students to access support services. This team format provides an opportunity for staff to collaborate and to address attendance, behavior, and academic issues quickly and efficiently.
Not Sure Where to Begin?
Students who may not know where to begin for support may visit their team room where a staff member can engage them and help to ascertain their unique needs.
