One of our goals for this year is to eliminate zeros on assignments.
This is a lofty goal, but one of value to all students. To facilitate
this, we have designed a system of intervention to aid students in completing
assignments. Completed assignments translate into more learning better
grades, higher student self-esteem, and increased overall student success.
Teachers will use every possible tactic to encourage students to turn
in their assignments on time. They will provide opportunities to make
up work with them at lunch and before or after school. Failure to turn
in work will result in further student success interventions as outlined
Their teachers may refer students with zeros on assignments
to lunch intervention. This is a 20-minute period starting at 10:55 a.m.
in Mr. Jordan's band room during the first part of lunch period. Students
will be released to eat on-campus only at 11:15. Students
can bring a lunch from home or eat in the Commons. Students must bring
the incomplete homework assignments described on the referral to work
on during this time.
All students are subject to being referred to lunch intervention.
However, any freshman that fails one or more classes in a quarter will
be assigned to lunch intervention until remediation of the failed grades
is completed. Upper classmen may loose open campus lunch privilege as
determined necessary by the administration.
Other reasons a student may be referred to lunch intervention include
having unexcused or excessive absences, excessive tardiness, failure to
complete trackers as assigned, or behaving in a way that negatively effects
student learning and success.
Consequences for failure to attend assigned lunch intervention classes
will result in referral to Fifth Period Intervention.
Fifth Period Intervention
The fifth period intervention class will be held Monday through
Thursday in the library from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. There will be a math tutor
and teachers from most departments from 2:45 to 3:15 to provide assistance
to students in completing assignments. Transportation home will not be
provided for those assigned to this class.
All students are welcome to come to the library to receive tutoring help
during this time. A referral to 5th period intervention is not necessary
to come and take advantage of this opportunity.
Consequences for failure to attend and complete work during 5th period
for students who are referred will result in the forth level intervention.
Referral to RTI(Response to Intervention Team)
A team headed by the administration and comprised of the referred
student, teachers, counselor, advisor, and parents will meet to design
a plan of action to get the student back on track to complete assigned
work. This team can be a positive force in a young struggling student's
life, if the student, if the student, the parents and the team take full
advantage of opportunities to work together in the best interest of the
student. Continued tracking, instruction, peer tutoring, counseling, or
testing for special services, may be recommended by this committee. Our
goal is to get the student maturing and working independently to organize
tasks and complete assignments to become a successful student.
Students who fail to be successful students at Canyon View High School
after moving through all of the above interventions will be referred by
the RTI team to one of several alternative school placements as outlined
Referral for an Alternative School Placement
After intervention options at the school level have failed to
get a student on track to graduate from CVHS, being referred to an an
alternative placement such as the Southwest Education Academy or the Iron
County School District ACCESS program are the next options. Taking the
GED and opting to leave CVHS are also options at this point.
