CJH Extend Learning Time (ELT)

8th Period – ELT/Advisory

February 1, 2021


Due to the amount of interrupted leaning that students have experienced over the course of this year because of COVID-19, beginning Monday, February 1, 2021, our 8th period will be used for ELT (Extended Learning Time) and Advisory.  Our mission is to ensure the academic growth of our students, and we believe this is a necessary step in accomplishing that mission.


We have developed a schedule in which students will revisit one of their teachers during 8th period.  The schedule is included below and accounts for school holidays and state testing days.  Between February 1st and the end of the semester, teachers will be able teach seven additional lessons.  Content teams will review past data from their Common Assessments (major tests) and District Learning Assessments (DLA's) to determine which content skills need additional instruction for students to reach a higher level of mastery.  We will also continue with our Character Strong lessons each Wednesday.  On Wednesday students will attend their assigned "Advisory" class per their schedule for the Character Strong lesson.


Student Expectations:

  • All students, both face-to-face and KVA, are expected to follow this new schedule.  Students will be marked absent for 8th period if they are not in attendance for an ELT or Advisory class.
  • On ELT days, students are expected to engage in the lesson and complete all assignments, just like in a regular class period.
  • For "8th Period Advisory" days as indicated on the schedule students are expected to use this time for academic learning, including the following:
    • See another teacher for tutoring/academic assistance if given a pass by that teacher.
    • Complete homework or study for upcoming tests/quizzes.
    • Read their book of choice from their ELA class.
    • Students should not be playing games or watching non-class related videos on their devices.
