REEDS SPRING, Mo. – The Reeds Spring School District takes study hall to the next level with a program designed to increase accuracy and relevance in the classroom, while also improving the culture and climate of the school.
On Thursday, April 14th, high school teachers selected students to join them in their classrooms for Guided Study Hall. The selection process was initiated through a new program called DRAFT or Developing Relationships and Focused Teaching.
Principal Dr. Isaac Sooter says this unique process for selecting students is all about getting students the right help at the right time:
Sooter adds those students who exhibit good grades, attendance, and behavior are excused from the DRAFT. These students earn gold or silver cards that allow them certain privileges during Guided Study Hall, like a reduced filter on their computer, open gym time, and access to the Media Lounge and Commons Area.
