Student Directed Learning (SDL) is held on Thursday of each week from 7:30 am to 8:25 am.  This is an opportunity for students to meet with their teachers for additional academic support.  All teachers are available during SDL.


Important Guidelines

  • GradeSlam is to be used for academic purposes only.  Teachers and administrators have the ability to review all GradeSlam interactions.
  • Be polite and respectful to the GradeSlam staff.  Users are representing LBHS!  Again, teachers and administrators have the ability to review all GradeSlam interactions.
  • Human help is always better than online help.  Students should try their best to get help from LBHS teachers or use the on-campus math lab and writing lab first.  GradeSlam is a backup source for help.  
  • Communicate Teachers' expectations clearly.  GradeSlam tutors can only help correctly if they know what a user's teachers expect.  If a teacher expects his or her students to solve math problems or write essays in a very specific way, it's up to the students to inform their tutors.  Otherwise, one may still get a bad grade even with GradeSlam's help.
