The Academic Educational Support Service Program (AESS)

The Academic Educational Support Services Program is designed for struggling students whose parents need or want more assistance in educating their child or for those families who do not choose to be as involved in the day-to-day educational program as the Home Study Program requires. 

At Coast Redwood High School, this program is called AESS or Additional Educational Support Services. The AESS Program allows for additional assistance from the Supervising Teacher (ST) and the ST will spend, at a minimum, one hour every two weeks working with the student. The decision to enroll a student into AESS may be made at the time of enrollment or when an academic need is identified.

The ST will facilitate securing clarification of the topics being studied (e.g., communicating with the online instructor), correct student work, and help with organizational and study techniques. In AESS, the ST works closely with the student throughout the month and the parent's main responsibility is to make sure the student is completing the assigned work. Student attendance at the weekly or bi-weekly scheduled appointments is mandatory.
