Attention Parents

  • Be sure to check with your students at the end of each week for their progress report. This gives a current view of your son or daughter’s progress in the areas of their main project, English, math and advisory. Students, be sure to return the progress reports each Monday to help earn advisory credit.

Academic Success Kit

  • The ASK is a kit provided to each PLI student which includes a list of expectations for students to accomplish so that they can earn credit in the core subject areas.
  • If students follow the steps laid out in their ASK, they will be successful.
