Success Lab - “Building a Culture of Success”
What is Success Lab? Holding students accountable for failing grades is a significant part of the learning process. Thus, students with an “F” grade as determined by eligibility grades are assigned to Success Lab during their block lunch so that they receive additional time to complete work with the support of the content teacher. However, Success Lab is open to all students. Students attend Success Lab on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 - 1:00, and then attend lunch from 1:00 - 1:30. Success Lab removes the “super lunch” and requires students to use this time for support.
