ACADEMIC SUPPORT AND ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM (ASAP)
The Academic Support and Achievement Program (ASAP) is newly
established this year as a result of the reorganization of the former
Neglected, Delinquent, and/or At-Risk youth program.
To ensure that all LAUSD students are enrolled, attending, engaged, and on-track to graduate.
Pupil Services will provide targeted, intensive academic support to identified,
high-need foster and probation youth through one-on-one or small group
afterschool tutoring by a Highly Qualified LAUSD teacher.
Teacher Tutors will:
- Improve educational services for youth who are neglected, delinquent or at risk so that they have the opportunity to meet the same challenging academic standards as all other students
- Engage caregivers, parents, and community partners in the educational process
- Improve basic academic skills (math and reading)
- Improve academic grades, as well as cooperation and work habit marks
- Increase credit accrual toward high school completion
- Increase graduation rates
- Review and assess academic records (grades, transcriptions, and test
scores) and student strengths/interests
- Collaborate with Pupil Services staff in the development, implementation, and monitoring of student driven academic support/tutoring plans every 90 days
- Provide individualized and/or small group tutoring in a licensed facility, foster home, group home, and/or school or community setting
