Student Support

At-Risk Services

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

The 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

Project Success

Project 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.)

A 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.
