Students and Parents,
I would like to take this opportunity to explain our FLEX program that we have here at Skyline High School.
Flex Time is part of the regular school day. Among other things, it is a program that offers additional instructional time for students. This instruction is designed to meet the needs of individual students and is appropriate for both remedial and enriched learning. Flex Time is held each day from 2:45-3:30 PM.
Extended 4th Block/Advisory:
During Flex Time, ALL 8-10th grade students will participate in Extended 4th Block/Advisory. Each student will be assigned to a Teacher/Advisor. These classes can be an opportunity for students to develop character skills and participate in organized and purposeful Study Halls.
The tutorial is an extended academic opportunity for all students, regardless of ability. Students can be assigned to Tutorials by their teachers. Participation in Tutorials is mandatory! Students in grades 8-10 must have a written pass from the tutorial teacher to leave their Extended 4th Block/Advisory.
Clubs & Activities:
Clubs provide a society of like-minded students with an opportunity to serve their school and community. A club schedule will be developed for all students.
The Cafeteria is open every day during Flex for 11-12th grade students.
Every teacher is a member of a “Teacher Team.” These teams will meet on a regular schedule during Flex time.
When students are assigned to an advisory class, tutorial, study hall, or other academic
class, they are expected to attend. Students who choose not to report will be processed
through the Attendance & Discipline Referral System. 8-10th Grade students are not dismissed from school until 3:30PM. Juniors and seniors may be dismissed at 2:45 if they do not have an assigned tutorial assignment. These students may also wait in the cafeteria for the 3:30 dismissal. Juniors and seniors are limited to the cafeteria and may not walk around the building or leave SHS and return.
I hope this information clears up any questions about our FLEX program.
