Correction to image: the StepUP dates for October are 2, 9, 16, and 23.

StepUP is Colton High School’s Saturday School program. Students are invited to attend to resolve any attendance or academic issues they may have.

Students with multiple absences interested in clearing those absences should report to StepUP on Saturday, September 18 from 8:00 AM to 12:10 PM. One day of StepUP clear six consecutive period absences. After all full-day absences are cleared, one day clears three individual period absences. Then, once all absences are cleared, one day of StepUP clears three tardies. All attendance clearance starts from the beginning of the year.

StepUP is run by Ms. Buskirk and overseen by our new Assistant Principal, Ms. Cruz.
