Academic Supports

General Support Information

General Support Information

Cavitt JHS is dedicated and committed to supporting all learners and provide a variety of ways to support students.  We recognize that students have different interests and learn at different rates, our supports provide students the ability to "drop-in" on an as-needed basis. 
We recommend that you monitor your child(ren)'s progress by reviewing teacher websites and knowing how the planner is being utilized.  Each teacher will update their website to include a calendar of assignments and other important information that you might want to know about. Try to engage your child in conversations about their work and help them continue to learn how to manage their time with project deadlines. 
We recommend that you check your student's grades on a weekly basis. This way you will be able to intervene with your child quickly if you notice any issues with their grades. You can access your student's grades by logging on to Power School: . You can also sign-up for weekly emails through Power School that will notify you of your student's current academic progress and grades. Please contact the school if you have lost your username and/or password. 
Cavitt JHS is proud to provide counseling support to our students. If your child is struggling with peer relationships, academics or are experiencing other anxieties, please see our Counseling page to make contact with our Counselor Shannon Laurin. 

We are very proud of the support options that our school has to offer our students. We look forward to working closely with you and your student to strengthen his/her academic skills.
