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 enclosed
district report card shows how your child’s school compares to other schools in
our district and state.
Your child’s school has been identified as needing improvement because of the
scores in 3rd-6th -grade mathematics and reading made by all students for the
past 2 years. Your school will address this area by offering professional
development, researching new reform models and visiting other schools for ideas
on how to improve our scores. 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 to your child is enclosed, and can also be viewed at:
http://webapp1.ode.state.oh.us/provider_proposal/lookup/. 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 your child’s
school. The availability of this free tutoring may be limited.
Please call Jody Wallace at 614-308-5991 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 Jody Wallace at 3435
Sullivant Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, 43204, in the stamped envelope provided.
Applications are due by September 28, 2011. You will receive a letter from
Sullivant Avenue Community School approximately November 7, 2011, telling you
when the free tutoring will start.
Finally, if you do not wish to sign up for these services, you may also choose
to transfer your child to another school NOT in School Improvement. See the
enclosed Public School Choice letter.
