The seminar section that you will be enrolled in may change through the year. Seminar sections are assigned by the counseling team based off academic grades and attendance. If you have any D or F grades you are assigned a Targeted Tutorial to get support in a specific subject or Guided Studies, to receive support in multiple subjects. If you think that you should be in a different seminar section contact your counselor directly and they review your request.
If you maintain all A, B and C grades you will be placed in a Study Hall section, you also have a chance to sign up for an Enrichment or an AP Study Hall. In AP Study Hall you can have a D/F grade in that AP class since you will receive support.
Attached to the like is a list of Enrichment and AP Study Hall sections that are offered. If you are already in a section and want to stay you don't need to do anything.
If you currently have one of the teachers you can sign up in class if you do not currently have one of these teachers you can sign up using the Seminar Enrichment and AP Study Hall Sign Up. Sign Up's are open NOW through Friday 4/14, make sure you do not sign up for more that. Some enrichments are limited to students in an academy (MAD/CS) or currently enrolled in the course (Theatre), additional information in each enrichment section can be found on the Seminar Enrichment and AP Study Hall Sign Up.
AP Study Halls for students earning Cs or better on their report card, you can have a D/F grade in the AP class you are signing up for since you will receive support.
