Flexible Mod Schedule
During resource, students pick a resource room where teachers are available to tutor and mentor students. Resource areas allow students the chance to work on collaborative projects with peers, receive help from content expert teachers, form study groups, or even learn above and beyond the curriculum in an area of interest. There are resource rooms available for students in the four core areas: math, communication arts, science, and social studies. Other resource areas include fine arts and business when available and privilege areas if students qualify. The privilege areas are open to students with high grades and allow for more freedom in choice of activities.
Flexible resource time makes getting help much easier for a student. On a traditional schedule, extra help was only available before or after school, but on a mod schedule, extra help and time to collaborate is available throughout a student's day; however, there are challenges for students. Students must learn to prioritize work and seek the help they need by attending the resource rooms most valuable to them. This may mean attending a different resource than their friends. Another challenge students face is holding themselves accountable. It can be tempting to work only on easy assignments, avoiding things that are more challenging. Still, students are given the chance to make these decisions. This helps them build important skills they will need to be successful in the years to come.
As a parent who probably attended school on a traditional schedule, the idea of mod and talk of “resource” can seem foreign. It can be hard to know how to support, encourage, and hold your student accountable. Parents can help students learn time management skills by checking in with them often and discussing their student’s progress in classes and how they are choosing to spend their resource time. Parents can guide students to set goals for resource time use and reflect with them to see if they were successful. If a student is struggling in a class, parents can help his/her student make the decision to frequent the appropriate resource room more often to receive help. There are supports in place to assist students who struggle to manage their time during resource. These supports include assigned resource time, assigned seating in resource, and the RISE resource room. Parents can also contact the office for further ideas about how to help their student if they have concerns.
