Academic Resources - Grading Periods, Struggling in a Class, Tutorial/Advisory Schedule

steps to take when struggling in a class

These are the STEPS you MUST follow to improve your grades:

Step #1 - Meet with your teacher privately to discuss the concerns or struggles you are experiencing in the class and ask for help.

Step #2 - Attend the Tutorial Period with your teacher to get extra help. This can be done on a regular basis or as needed. Check the Tutorial Information Link on the left-hand side menu for more details.

Step #3 - Check the Tutoring Map when your teachers are available for additional tutoring support.

Step #4 - Attend the Homework Center after school in the Library to get extra help from a staff or peer.

Step #5 - Sign-up for a private tutor from the Saintly Tutors Program from the Santa Teresa School Website.

Step #6 - Schedule a Parent/Teacher/Student Conference to discuss strategies that will help you improve your grades.

OTHER STEPS:

--If the above steps have NOT been successful, contact your counselor to discuss other options and possibly initiate an IST meeting with all your teachers.

--If you have an emergency situation that happens in your class (one that requires you to file a report) you will need to see an Advisor/Counselor/Administrator immediately.

Grading Periods

Students will receive grades every (6) weeks. Any missed or incomplete assignments, lack of participation in the class, poor attendance, low test scores, may be factors why students may be receiving low grades.
