TUTORING SUPPORT

Paper Access - 24/7 Online Tutoring for Math and English


We are excited to use the free tutoring program offered through MDE. "The tutoring services will be live, online and available 24/7 with a live person. Parents may also schedule tutorial services for their child(ren) after school hours and on the weekend. These services will also be available for English learners and students with special needs."

"MDE sought high-dosage tutoring services, which is a strategy to close achievement gaps, to mitigate any impact COVID-19 and school closures had on learning and instruction and as a way to accelerate student learning."


Please see the link to access this wonderful service to support your child's learning.
