The Salinas Union High School District is hosting a "provider fairs" to inform families about free academic tutoring available to them.
Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the Federal education reform law, many public school students from low income families are eligible to receive free tutoring under a national program called Supplemental Educational Services (SES). In SUHSD, the schools that offer SES are Alisal High, El Sausal Middle, Everett Alvarez High, La Paz Middle, North Salinas High, Harden Middle, Salinas High and Washington Middle School.
Through SES, a child is eligible for extra help in English, Math, and Science if he or she is eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at school or attends a Title 1 school that the state has identified as not making adequate yearly progress for two years. Parents choose a tutoring service from a list of approved educational providers developed by the state. The tutoring services are paid for by the school district and are available
before or after school or the weekends.
The provider's fairs will take place:
From 5:30p.m.-6:30p.m. on Tues., Oct. 8 at the large gym room at Everett Alvarez High.
From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wed., Oct. 9 at the cafeteria of Alisal High.
From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tues., Oct. 15 at the large gym of Salinas High.
From 5:30 to 6:30 pm. on Wed., Oct. 16, at the small gym of North Salinas High.
