Academic Supports

At Conant High School, we strive to provide academic support to all students, both inside and outside the classroom in order to enhance student success.  While students are always encouraged to seek assistance from their academic teacher, a variety of resources are available for students seeking additional supports.

Counselor
Students work with their counselor to develop a personal academic plan based on their interests and goals.  The counselor can also recommend other academic supports as needed.

General Study Hall
All students, with a free period, are assigned a General Study Hall where they can quietly do work, visit the Media Center, or seek other academic supports in the tutor center.

Tutoring
Individual and small group tutoring is available throughout the school day.  Students are able to drop in for extra support as needed to ensure academic success.  The following table shows specific times and locations where these supports are available.  Students are always encouraged to talk to their teachers about specific issues in their class.

Guided Study Hall
Students may be assigned to a Guided Study Hall.  This study hall provides students with extra teacher support in a smaller setting.  In addition, students will work to develop study, organizational, and other academic skills.

Athletic Study Hall
Student athletes may be assigned to an Athletic Study Hall if their grades fall below the district standard.  This study hall is designed to give your child a quiet work environment and access to additional resources to support academic success.

Learning Support Team (LST)
Each LST consists of an administrator, counselors, and psychologist/social worker, which provides one point for parents and students to access support services.  This team format provides an opportunity for staff to collaborate and to address attendance, behavior, and academic issues quickly and efficiently.
