SAIL HIGH SCHOOL INTENSIVE PROCESS
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
6th Period Introduction - Slide Show and Handouts
For over 30 years we have set aside a week in the spring for all students to participate in experiential learning activities outside of the regular classroom structure. The bonding experiences, new horizons, and teamwork that come from these experiences are some of our graduates’ fondest SAIL memories.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
8:30-9:00 a.m. Round Robin – Two 10-minute sessions.
Go meet the sponsors and learn more about the two intensives that interest you the most.
At a later time, if you are interested in other intensives, feel free to contact their sponsors.
OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS!
Go over the intensive descriptions and discuss options with your parents. You’ll soon be asked to rank your top (4) choices, with #1 being your preferred intensive. Make sure your parent(s) agree with your choices!!!
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 to TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 – COMPLETE ONLINE CHOICES FORM
Complete the online form located on the SAIL website AND check the Canvas announcement identifying your top four choices. It’s important that your choices are both interesting to you and realistic financially. Also, make sure your choices include a couple in-town intensives.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT??
Selection process--Your intensive selections will be reviewed by sponsoring teachers who will post a list of students invited to join. Consideration will be given to a student’s grade level, behavior, grades, and attendance. Seniors and juniors will be considered first, but grade level is ONLY ONE of the factors considered. Ninth graders, new students, and students not currently in good standing are less likely to be accepted into their first choice intensive, especially if it travels out-of-town.
Registration – As lists are posted, students who have been invited to join must see the intensive sponsor to get the required parent permission/deposit forms. (Time and date for this activity will be announced.) A PERMISSION FORM WITH DEPOSIT MONEY must be returned to the main office in order to secure your place on the Intensive. No one is officially on an intensive until FULLY COMPLETE forms and monies have been received.
Follow Up - After initial lists are posted, students will have additional opportunities to fill open spaces, and some new intensives may form. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t get what you want in the first round! Placing 390 students is a complex and on-going process, so please bear with us. Our goal is for every student to have a rewarding educational experience.
INTENSIVES WILL BE THE WEEK OF MARCH 6 - MARCH 10, 2023
