ZAP at Kennedy Middle School

Students are expected to turn all work in to the teacher on time. We encourage every student to turn in each assignment to provide them with the best opportunity to pass each class.

If a student does not turn in an assignment on time, they will be Zapped. This will allow each student two additional days to receive credit on each assignment. They will be asked to go to the lunch study hall to complete the assignment with support from our Intervention Specialist. The students will be asked to turn in all work before this deadline. If a student fails to turn in an assignment after two days, they will be given a consequence. If a student reaches more than 10 ZAPS over the course of one trimester, they will be notified that they are no longer invited to the lunch study hall program. They will also be assigned an Intervention Specialist to help them along the way. Please discuss with your son/daughter the importance of every assignment.

6th Grade: ZAP will run the first and second trimester. 3rd trimester: students should now be adjusted to KMS expectations and are now responsible for their assignments.
7th Grade: ZAP will run for the first trimester. Full responsibility for completing work and handing it in is put on student/parent (starting 2nd semester).
8th Grade: Students are expected to see intervention specialist for assistance. Full responsibility for completing work and handing it in is put on student/parent.

Consequences for work not turned in:
 1-3 assignments: Parent letter
 4-6 assignments: Detention - before school, lunch, or after school depending on staff availability.
 7-9 assignments: In School Suspensions
 10 or more assignments: Out of School Suspensions. Assigned Intervention Specialist.
Please remember these are for ZAP’s not being turned in. This is not for being Zapped.

We have Intervention Specialists available for students at each grade level. If at any time, a student needs additional help with work, they can come to our Before School Homework Club, Lunch Study Hall or After School Homework Club for help.
