Teacher Office Hours


To increase availability of support for students at predictable and consistent intervals.


Students gain increased access to their teacher in order to further build their skills and mindsets according to their individual needs.

Action Steps

Gather input from your students on times they are likely to take advantage of office hours, prioritizing before or after school hours. If possible, allow students to shift their schedules as needed to ensure they get assistance

Gather all of the information about the office hours before sharing, including: when and where, how students should use office hours, what you can and cannot discuss, and how students can sign up.

Provide students ample reminders and time to sign up before holding the first set of office hours. Make sure to re-offer them as a support when students are struggling.


Consider incentivizing office hours with meaningful rewards for students.
