Tutorial is a 30-minute period that is part of the instructional day. Tutorial minutes count toward the school's total instructional time just like regular classes; therefore, students must treat tutorial with the same respect as class time, including respecting all school/classroom rules and staying on task. All students are required to attend tutorial between their first and second block classes.
The purpose of tutorial is for students to receive help from teachers or peer tutors, get make-up work after or before an absence, utilize the College and Career Center, and work on schoolwork. Some examples of schoolwork include homework, studying, reviewing, reading, collaborative work, quiz/test retakes, and make-up work.
Leigh's Tutorial Norms

Teachers may have to close their tutorial if it is full or if they need to work with a specific group of students that day. Teachers will usually announce closed tutorials in advance.
You must have your student ID with you every day; you will use it to scan into tutorial for attendance.
Starting after six-week grades come out, students with a D or F in any class will be required to attend that class's tutorial for intervention support. The class will be closed to all other students. See the poster below for the tutorial intervention schedule.
