Tutoring Program Starts October 23

disney_magnet_schooOur school has been selected by CPS for the Out-of-School Time (OST) Award Program, and will be using the funding to host a tutoring program for K-8th grade students.

From October 23- May 30, each grade will host a free tutoring session in an effort to boost academic performance.  The tutoring sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 pm.  The tutoring will be focused on grade-level specific skills (First-grade tutoring groups will focus on first-grade skills, etc.)

The tutoring requires a few things, so be prepared.

1) Consistent attendance.  More than one unexcused absence may result in dismissal from the program.  Excused absences must be communicated to Anna Smith (the OST Program Coordinator) by 8 am on the day of tutoring. ahsmith@cps.edu

2) Exceptional focus, work ethic, and behavior are expected.  Students that do not follow these expectations can expect to be dismissed from the program.

3) Timely Arrival.  At 2:25 during dismissal students are to go directly to their tutoring room.   Club sessions start promptly at 2:30 pm.

4) Timely Departure.  Parents/Guardians must come to the CAC at 3:30 pm to pick up their student.  If a parent arrives after 3:40pm more than once, the child may be dismissed from the program after administrative review.  Please note that if your child participates in the Disney After School program, they will go down to the Main Office after the program and be directed to their after-school classroom.
