GENERAL FIFTH BLOCK INFORMATION

La Quinta Sesión de Instrucción (Fifth Block) empieza en mayo de 2015

Las Escuelas Públicas de Aurora ofrecen una Quinta Sesión de Instrucción voluntaria para los estudiantes que han demostrado un crecimiento académico durante el año escolar y que podrían beneficiarse de tiempo adicional de aprendizaje en matemáticas y alfabetización. Se da prioridad a los estudiantes que no son proficientes en ambas materias de alfabetización y matemáticas,  ya sea que tengan un nivel de progreso insatisfactorio y parcialmente competente.

Las invitaciones serán ofrecidas a estudiantes entrando desde el segundo al décimo grado que todavía no son proficientes pero demuestran evidencia de crecimiento. La Quinta Sesión también incluye estudiantes entrando al cuarto grado que están bajos en el dominio de la lectura y a los estudiantes entrando al sexto, séptimo, octavo, noveno y décimo grado que están en un nivel bajo de proficiencia en matemáticas. Los estudiantes deben haber tenido inscripción continua en APS, por lo menos un año (de marzo a marzo), una asistencia constante y buen comportamiento.

La Quinta Sesión se proporciona a los estudiantes sin costo adicional para los padres. Generalmente, se les enseña a los estudiantes en sus propias escuelas utilizando el plan de estudios del distrito. El tamaño de la clase se encuentra en una proporción de 25 a 1.

El año escolar regular es del 5 de agosto de 2014 hasta el 20 de mayo de 2015. La Quinta Sesión de Instrucción se ofrecerá desde el 26 de mayo de 2015 hasta el 25 de junio de 2015 para el año escolar 2014-15.

El personal escolar notificará a los padres de los estudiantes elegibles empezando el 3 de marzo de 2015 al 3 de abril de 2015, y los padres deben devolver los contratos firmados para aceptar la participación de su hijo en la Quinta Sesión a más tardar el 10 de abril de 2015.
