Evening tutoring gets underway, Jan. 31

This year the Freedom Area School District has introduced a new program for after school evening tutoring. This program so far has 13 staff members that will be rotating between Tuesdays and Thursdsy to help students with any homework questions they have. It will be provided for grades 5-8 if they have any questions to ask their teachers. 

Dr. Smith hopes this program can start as soon as Tuesday, Jan. 31  and will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. It will last 2 hours after school from 3 – 5 p.m. and will have some of the 13 staff members rotating to help students.

You may be wondering why night tutoring wasn’t available before. It wasn’t available because our school didn’t have the funding but now since the ESSER grant the school can finally provide it.  The ESSER grant stands for Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief. The ESSER grant was given to schools around the state to help build a safer environment and better teaching after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The school will be reaching out to families that they think could benefit from staying after school to help bring in more people. They also plan on advertising it after it starts to get more of a turnout.
