High Academics Provide rigorous and relevant curriculum that is standards- based and appropriate to the needs of the students. Communicate with families about student needs and academic endeavors. Ensure that students are held accountable for attendance and getting to school on time. Families will make sure students  turn in assignments in a timely manner. Parents/Guardians will learn more about Focus Parent Portal, Google Classroom, and other resources to help students at home. Students will work hard to show mastery of the standards-based materials provided and to be engaged in their learning. They will seek assistance if needed in an effort to ensure success in the academic setting.
