On Monday, November 7, 2016 Lyme-Old Lyme High School is proud and extremely excited to announce the opening of THE ACADEMIC SUCCESS CENTER. For the past two months we have been developing and redesigning the former Learning Center into what will now be called THE ACADEMIC SUCCESS CENTER (aka: TASC). Our goal is to create and maintain an educational environment in which students will develop student organizational skills and where we will be able to provide our student body with targeted Tier 2 interventions when needed using PSAT/ SAT testing data as a primary focus as well as offer English/ Language Arts and Math tutoring on a drop in and/or scheduled basis.
TASC will now function more like a classroom setting staffed with three tutors: Mr. Popeleski, Mrs. Tarkoff, and Mr. Arcisz. By working with the tutors in TASC, students will develop the skills needed to not only succeed in their classes but develop techniques that will allow them to become a more independent learner. The TASC team met with a group of students to solicit feedback which was honest and helpful in establishing further guidelines. One of the most significant requests from students was the ability for them to earn credit for being assigned to TASC. Students will now be receiving .25 credits per year and up to a .50 credit towards graduation requirements.
So, beginning on Monday new procedures and routines will begin such as:
I am so excited to get this new program off the ground ... I know that academic success will be the logical result because ...being on task in TASC leads to SUCCESS!
