SSS FLEX BLOCK

ENHANCE   ENRICH   EXTEND

 

FLEX IS...

  • STUDENT CHOICE
  • TIME TO DIG DEEPER INTO A TOPIC OF INTEREST
  • STUDY TIME
  • EXTRA TIME TO FACILITATE UNDERSTANDING
  • TRYING SOMETHING NEW 

​Flex takes place on Thursdays from 9:38 to 10:40am. See the Flex Bell Schedule here.

PURPOSE OF FLEX

  • Revisit concepts or re-learn needed skills
  • Time for make-up tests, projects, assignments
  • Extension activities to advance skills and abilities of those who already understand concepts being taught

STUDENT EXPECTATIONS

  • Flex is a requirement, not an option.
  • You will be in class and participating, not wandering the halls.
  • You should be engaged in the activity.
  • You must attend the session you are assigned to or have chosen.
  • Late/Absences are treated the same as regular classes. Attendance is mandatory (If you do not choose a session, you will go to your default teacher - period 1 teacher).
  • Take advantage of the wide variety of choices - This is an opportunity for you to have control over your learning.

STUDENT SESSION POSSIBILITIES

  • Students sign up for one of his/her teacher's sessions
  • School wide offerings: Students also have the opportunity to sign up for sessions put on by any teacher in the school.
  • Grade specific sessions: You may be assigned or asked to choose a session (grad meeting, course selections, DVR verifications).
  • Teacher Overrides: A teacher may override your choice and reassign you to their session (make-up assignment, missed test) or assign you to another session if you don't make a selection.
