If the resources below don't seem to be yielding improvements, please contact your student's counselor to see what other suggestions and interventions he/she might have for assisting your student. We have an experienced team of counselors, social workers, school psychologists, a chemical health counselor, administration, and other support staff ready and willing to help your student(s) in any way we can.
Tips for Academic Success
Get organized: Check Infinite Campus and Schoology to find out what missing assignments, tests, and/or projects you have. Use a planner!
Talk with your teacher: Teachers love when students are proactive and willing to help formulate a plan and put the work in to get back on track. Teachers are here to help and support you! Don’t wait until it is too late to have this conversation; Quarters go by very fast!
Talk with your counselor: We understand that getting behind in your class(es) may be the result of something personal going on in your life. Counselors are here to listen, support, and advocate for you! We are experts in organizational skills and intervention planning and implementation.
Prioritize your academics: Balancing time between academics, extracurricular activities, and social life isn’t always easy, so be sure to set aside time each night for your studies so that you are confident for class the next day and prepared for any upcoming exams. Also, be mindful of how much time you are spending on social media, TV, and video games!
Finish the quarter strong: Lakers don't give up! It is a process, so keep working hard and always focus on what you can control.
Before committing financially to a tutor or tutoring service, be sure your student is maximizing their flex time with teachers. Getting 1 on 1 and small group help directly from the teacher will always be the most beneficial intervention for your student!
