Parents and Guardians,
As we prepare for potential reopening in January, Atlanta Public Schools is expanding targeted interventions to address learning loss, wellness, and engagement. As part of this initiative, Sylvan Hills Middle School is offering an after school tutorial for students identified as “at-risk”. This face-to-face intervention program will provide the opportunity to increase your child’s likelihood of improving academic success. Students identified are performing at the “Beginning Level” in both Reading and Math on the Fall STAR assessment, received an Incomplete (I) during the first 9 week grading period, is failing 2 or more classes, and/or have an average daily attendance rate less than 80%.

This program will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 p.m. on campus. Students who attend will be provided with a snack daily.
