When are ATYP classes held?
Kent ATYP courses are taught in a blended format, meaning there is both an online component and a class (face to face) component. Students are expected to do summer learning assignments and to have access to the technology to electronically submit work in addition to the weekly face to face class time during the school year.
Kent ATYP classes meet Wednesdays at the Kent Career and Technical Center (1655 East Beltline NE) on the Kent ISD Campus. ATYP students receive information about exact first semester classroom assignments each August. Students will be assigned to either session one: 6:50-9:05, session two: 9:15-11:30 or session three 12:05-2:15. Class schedules change from year to year depending on the number of sections of each course needed.
ATYP English classes meet one Monday evening most months from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for ELA Extension
and on most Mondays an optional ELA drop-in study table is available for students needing individual assistance. Each Math class has a weekly Monday evening study table from 6-7 p.m. or 7-8 p.m. All Monday night study tables and extensions are held at the Kent ISD Educational Service Center, 2930 Knapp NE, Grand Rapids, 49525. (Park in Lot #11)
2015-2016 Class schedule:

How is the ATYP Calendar Set?
ATYP Calendar for face to face classes: The Kent ATYP calendar is developed from the calendar recommended by the Kent ISD Superintendents’ Association Perpetual Calendar Committee. Kent ATYP classes will meet on days when local districts have half days or full days off for conferences, in services, special vacations, or exams, etc. The only scheduled days when Kent ATYP classes do not meet are listed in the Kent County Common Calendar Agreements.
