Dear Parent and/or Guardian:
Help your child succeed in school-sign up for free tutoring! As a result of the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, your child can receive extra help in the approved subject areas. You can receive this free tutoring because your child’s school is in its second year (Lebanon Grade School has not made adequate yearly progress on state tests for at least three years), and your family meets the income limits under the law.
You can choose a free tutoring program that is best for your child. These programs have been approved by the Illinois State Board of Education and will provide your child with tutoring that is coordinated with what is being taught in school.
When deciding which tutoring program is best for your child, you may want to consider these questions:
*When and where will the tutoring take place?
*How often and for how many hours in total will your child be tutored?
*What programs, by grade levels and subject areas, are available for your child?
*What type of instruction will the tutor use (small group, one-on-one, or computer)?
*Can the tutor help if your child has disabilities or is learning English?
*What are the tutor’s qualifications?
If more students request tutoring than can be served through available funding, priority will be given to low-performing students as determined by the district.
Please call Jeff Teasley at 618-537-4553 if you have any questions about these services. Applications are due by Friday, May 31. You will receive a letter from Jeff Teasley by Friday, June 7th, telling you when the free tutoring will start.
