What is ZAP?

ZAP stands for “Zeros aren’t Permitted”. ZAP is an intervention which provides students with an opportunity to complete missing classwork and assignments in a quiet environment, during the first part of their regular lunch period. ZAP is designed to insure that you get your school work done, which will help you learn and be academically successful.

Who will get ZAPPED ?

A student who has not completed his/her classwork or homework at the time it is due will get “Zapped” by their teacher. The teacher will indicate this in the student’s planner by circling the missing assignment in planner so student (and parent) will know that the student is getting ZAPPED.

Note: student has the remainder of the week to get work turned in before officially being sent to ZAP for the following week.

What happens if I get ZAPPED ?

Your teacher will inform you that you’ve been ZAPPED, and until you become “unZapped” (explained below)

You must report to the ZAP Zone (Room 10 or 15, depending on lunch schedule) at the beginning of your lunch, each day for the following week, until you are UNZAPPED by turning your work into the teacher who ZAPped you. (Students serve ZAP for incomplete assignments from the previous week.)

While serving ZAP, you must:

Report immediately to ZAP at the beginning of your lunch period.

Know which assignment/s you are to be working on (the circled ones!) and how to complete them. ZAP zone is not considered a tutoring session.

Bring all necessary materials needed to complete work.

Complete work silently.

Continue serving ZAP all week, or until you get unZAPPED by your teacher (teacher stamp or signature).

How do I get unZAPPED ?

To get unZAPPED, take the completed work to the teacher/s who ZAPPED you in the planner.

Make sure to take work to the teacher when, how, and where they have established as their procedure for completed ZAP work.

If the work is acceptable, the teacher will unZAP you by marking (or stamping) UNZAPPED by the missing assignment noted in your planner.

You still need to report immediately to ZAP at the beginning of your next lunch period, and show the ZAP Zone team leader your UNZAPPED stamp, or turn in your UNZAP slip.

You will then be excused from ZAP!

What if I no-show ZAP?

You MUST serve your ZAP time or you will receive consequences. We will radio security to find you at lunch, or call you up with a pass and ask where you were!  Then, you will still be ZAPPED plus receive progressive discipline consequences.

What's the best way to avoid ZAP?
Do all assignments on time!  If you struggle with an assignment at home, email the teacher while you are working on the assignment to ask a question, so the teacher can be prepared to help you the next day, and so the teacher knows that you were attempting to complete all work.
