Tutoring is different in each grade level and we build a support program based off the needs of students and teachers. We host small group, one on one, and office hour options. Our goal is to provide students independence and teach them how to advocate for themselves when needing support. Teachers monitor student progress and also require tutoring if and when a student needs it.
Desert Heights Charter Schools offers K-4th grade tutoring invitations for students identified as benefiting from additional support to help them meet the Arizona reading and/or math standards. Tutoring takes place in a small group with other children for two days per week, over a multi-week session, in either the Fall or Spring. Students are provided with additional practice on the skills that will assist them to become successful readers and/or mathematicians. Students may receive tutoring services by a classroom teacher or other specialized teacher, such as a member of the Title I Intervention Team. Parent registration, via the tutoring invitation paperwork, is required for students to attend tutoring.
In addition to intervention time built in to the school day, teachers host tutoring sessions at least once a week during lunch and/or after school. Students may request additional time as needed.
