The following are some of the special services that are made available to Auto Academy students only. These are some of the reasons that academy students are made to feel like a family.
One of the primary objectives of the academy is to ensure that all academy students perform their academics at the highest level possible for each individual. To that end, if a student is having difficulty in any subject, the academy has a paid tutor (a credentialed teacher) ready to help. The tutor is available to Academy students only and is available during period 7 for a munimum of two days per week. Students that are having difficuly are encouraged to attend.
On occasion, students may be assigned to tutorial by an academy teacher. Students are assigned tutorial because they need extra help...not as punishment for some infraction in a class. When they are assigned tutorial, the students must report for help. If they do not report, they will be sent to the academy administrator who will assign appropriate consequences.
Tutorial may also be used as a quiet place to study, do homework, or work on the computer for students not necessarily needing help. Tutorial is NOT a place to socialize, play computer games or fool around. Students not obeying the rules for the tutorial will be asked to leave.
