Earlier this year the Arizona Department of Education adopted new rules regarding instructional time in accordance with the passing of Arizona HB 2862. These new rules were designed to allow schools flexibility in addressing learning loss and circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
To address this, FrenchAm Academy is adding additional instructional time for students who need support in language arts and literacy. These students are being identified via specific testing criteria:
- Placement Testing
- Literacy Screening Testing
- Benchmark Testing
- In-Progress Grades
Within the next week your child’s teacher will contact you by email to let you know if your child meets the criteria and they must attend Friday Support from 9:00am to noon, beginning 9/10/21.
Friday Support is required educational time for all students that are identified. It is an additional early release school day; attendance will be taken and uniforms are required. Friday Support is not optional and is only open to those students identified through the specific testing criteria.
