Howell Public Schools offers
At-Risk services to students who are academically under achieving. These
students are identified by the school's At-Risk teacher and aides using
state assessment scores, classroom grades and teacher recommendations.
At-Risk servicing is then provided through our Reading Coach and aides pushing
in to our English encore support classes to offer academic tutoring.
At-Risk services are paid for with state funding (31a money).
Encore Support Courses
middle schools offer an encore support course for each subject (ELA,
Math, Science and Social Studies) for each grade level. These are
electives that academically under achieving students are placed in to
give them a second opportunity during their school day to master the
core Grade Level Content Expectations (GLCEs) set forth by the state of
Michigan and HPS.
The Encore Support Courses have the following titles:
Write On (supports ELA Standards) courses for grades 6, 7 and 8
Math Power Hour (supports Math Standards) courses for grades 6, 7 and 8
Deciphering Science (supports Science GLCEs) courses for grades 6, 7 and 8
Reading Destination (supports Social Studies GLCEs) courses for grades 6, 7 and 8
Success small group adolescent support services are provided through a
federal grant to all Livingston County schools. A Project Success
Counselor works side-by-side with a HPS counselor, one day a week, in
each our middle schools to provide a menu of small groups from which
students may choose to participate. Topics include: Coping Skills, Divorce, Insight and Teen Choices. Students must obtain parent permission to
miss instruction in an elective class for the 8 weekly sessions. Please
speak to a counselor if you are interested in this service.

Student Intervention Teams (S.I.T.)
Student Intervention Team may be requested by a parent, student,
teacher, counselor or administrator. The purpose of the team is to
review student academic and/or behavior concerns and then create a plan
for success. The student is monitored for progress (using academic
and/or behavior data) and encouraged for a minimum of 9 weeks. Students
take ownership in their plan, their data, and their achievements.
Counselors facilitate the S.I.T. process and should be contacted by
anyone interested in getting a S.I.T. initiated.
