Aiming High at RAUC

Aiming High at RAUC
Posted on 09/17/2019
For families new to RAUC, you may have noticed Aim High classes in your student’s schedule The Aim High block is an intentional program within our school day to provide access, supports, and extensions so all students are adequately challenged to reach their fullest potential. Most students are assigned an Aim High class with one of their core teachers. Some students receive targeted support from a literacy or math specialist while others may 
be meeting with a special educator as part of their individualized education plan. Teachers have been in communication with those families; those groupings shift over the course of the year in response to student needs. 
Aim High classes occur twice a week for 30 minutes starting this Wednesday. Teachers introduced students to the goals and structures of Aim High in advisory. The goals are also shared with you below.

Goals of Aim High:
  • Support all students in “Aiming High” (see our core value definition below)
  • Provide students with support to grow in targeted areas based on individual needs and goals
  • Provide enrichment opportunities for students demonstrating proficiency in grade level standards
Aim High RAUC definition - challenge yourself to set high academic and 
social goals.
  • Reach for academic excellence
  • Keep a Growth Mindset
  • Work hard and persevere
  • Be curious, take risks
  • Maintain integrity
This is our second year of Aim High blocks. A survey of students last year showed that students overwhelmingly appreciated having this time to catch up on work and get extra support or simply to have access to a teacher when they had questions. The survey results also showed us that we can continue to improve on how we use this time to build student sense of agency and independence. Families at last Friday’s Coffee with the Principal had some helpful ideas. Thank you for your patience as we work to aim high ourselves 
in making these classes as effective as possible.
