- July 2022
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back to Walnutwood High School 2022-2023 school year. We are looking forward to a healthy and productive year.
We are here to support your students in every way possible!
If you are interested in enrolling in our school, please contact your current counselor and request a referral to Walnutwood. If your student has an IEP, please work with your current case manager to have an IEP to determine your student’s academic needs and appropriate placement. All families returning and new are required to come to our main office to sign a contract prior to instruction starting.
We will continue with the 9th grade Pathfinders Program. The purpose of Pathfinders is to prepare freshmen with the necessary study, reading, and writing skills to succeed in Walnutwood’s Independent Study program. All students will be enrolled 2 days a week. Students who successfully complete 4-5 courses will earn 25 credits and be able to move on to the regular independent study program in the Spring if appropriate. During the semester, students will participate in mini-lessons in English and math, as well as planning, calendaring, and developing effective study skills.
Students who are in 10th-12th grade meet with their teacher for 1 45-minute block of time a week. Students should anticipate 4-5 hours of homework daily. All students are encouraged to attend support labs from 8:45-3:45 to receive additional help as needed.
We are no longer serving middle school students.
