Free Tutoring for Your Child!
2015-2016 School Year
Help your child succeed in school – sign up for free tutoring!
Because of the No Child Left Behind funding, your child can receive extra help in reading and mathematics. You can receive this free tutoring because your child’s school is in its second year or later of School Improvement, and your family meets the income limits under the law.
School Improvement means your school did not meet Ohio’s goals in reading, mathematics, attendance or graduation for two years in a row or more. Your child’s school has been identified for improvement because it has not made Adequate Yearly Progress on Ohio’s Achievement Tests for at least three years in a row. The district report card shows how Interactive Media And Construction compares to other schools in our district and state. (See State Report Card)
The Interactive Media And Construction has been identified as needing improvement because of Attendance and Graduation. The Interactive Media And Construction will address these areas by offering professional development; researching new reform models and visiting other schools for ideas on how to improve. You are invited to join us, to serve on a committee or to help us in other ways to accomplish this goal.
You can now choose a free tutoring program that is best for your child. The district will provide assistance in selecting an approved provider, if
requested. A list of approved tutoring programs that wish to offer free
tutoring is available, and can also be viewed at:Supplemental
Education Service Providers.pdf. These programs have been approved by the Ohio Department of Education and will provide your child with tutoring that is coordinated with what is being taught in Interactive Media And Construction. The availability of this free tutoring may be limited.
Please call Ms. Tashica Cheathem at 419-525-0105 if you have any questions about these services. If you would like to select a tutor now, you can fill out the enclosed provider selection form and mail it back to Ms Brenda Lawrence at 445 Bowman Street, Mansfield, Ohio, 44903, in the stamped envelope provided. Applications are due by February 1, 2016. You will receive a letter from The Mansfield Elective Academy by February 15, 2016, telling you when the free tutoring will start.
