Rosemount High School Irish Flex Day May 17, 2018

May 7, 2018

We will conduct our final Irish Flex Day for Spring Trimester on Thursday, May 17. The purpose of this list serve is to share some of the details regarding Flex Days. The format and schedule for May Flex Day is different than that of the first four Flex Days. It is the format we used for our April Flex Day. Please read this with care so you understand the format for the May Flex Day. All students in all grades are to report to period 1 class at 7:30 a.m. on Flex Day.

In order to increase student success in their classes and to expose students to topics of academic importance outside of the classroom, Rosemount High School is hosting six Irish Flex Days over the course of the 2017–2018 school year. All of the district high schools are providing these flex days for students during the 2017–2018 school year. Flex Day allows students in need of Intervention or Remediation help in their classes to get it during normal school hours. It is also an opportunity for some students to study beyond the normal class curriculum through Enrichment.

  • Intervention: Is the opportunity for students to work on a specific portion of a course that they may be experiencing difficulty.
  • Remediation: Is the opportunity for students to work on specific skills that are needed to be successful in a particular course.
  • Enrichment: Is the opportunity for the student to explore a topic that goes beyond the normal curriculum of a particular course.

On Flex Day, students will be provided with fifty minutes of Enrichment/Intervention time. Students in need of extra help with their class work will be provided Intervention time where they will work with one of their teachers to review concepts and/or make up missed work. Students not needing Intervention time will attend an Enrichment session which will focus on a timely academic topic of interest. Prior to our final Irish Flex Day, Thursday, May 17, students needing Intervention time will be issued a pass by their classroom teacher who wishes to work with them. On Irish Flex Day morning, classes will be shortened to allow for Intervention and Enrichment time. On Irish Flex Day, all students will report to periods 1–2 for shortened classes. Immediately following period 2, students with passes from classroom teachers will report to teachers' locations for Intervention time. All other students will attend an Enrichment activity. At the conclusion of the Enrichment/Intervention Sessions, all students will move on to adjusted period three and four classes. Periods five through seven will follow our normal schedule.
