Capital High Small Learning Communities (SLC)
Small Learning Communities are designed to help freshmen students transition successfully from the middle school "team" atmosphere to the high school environment. Three groups of three teachers each represent the SLC system at Capital High School. Students are randomly selected to be included in an SLC, and are placed on a specific team in accordance with their schedule. Each student on the SLC will have at least two if not all three of the teachers on that SLC.
The SLC teachers meet daily to discuss student progress, conduct student and parent meetings, and to collaborate with each other, the administration, and other teachers in order to maximize the success achieved by each and every student. When a student begins to fall behind academically the SLC teachers will work with that student to get back on track. It this is not effective, parent and administrator meetings are organized and scheduled.
