Final exams are beginning and marking the beginning of the holiday season, Superintendent Dr. Dan Cates, along with students of District 211 have come up with the innovated idea of having night hours to study and get help from teachers.

To test this new idea, all high schools in the district are having extended hours dedicated to getting tutoring and studying after school on Monday Dec 19 and Tuesday Dec 20 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Most schools are having this innovation in their libraries, but since the Palatine High School’s media center is still under construction, the PHS extended tutor hours will be in the cafeteria. The temporary PHS media center in room 191 will still be open on Monday and Tuesday from 3:30 pm to 6 pm.

“We have support of teachers in all the core areas for now.” PHS principal Gary Steiger said. “Many volunteered to assist, we will see how it goes.”

To support and motivate students to be prepared for their exams, there will be teachers volunteering to help from the science, social studies, and English departments.

“For many of our students it is not easy to get to the Palatine Public Library.” Steiger said, “So many this will help those who can not get there.”

In District 211, students are surrounded by support. Teachers want their students to do their best on their exams, and are willing to stay past normal school hours to help.

“Because I do athletics, it can be hard to fit getting help in.” PHS senior Alex Ploch said, “Having the 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. time slot to get help from a teacher is a fantastic idea. If I had this opportunity when I was a freshman, my test scores probably would’ve been higher.”

When the new Media Center is up and open for business, late night tutoring hours may be implemented if students take advantage of this opportunity.
