PTHS 209 Continues to Offer Free Tutoring Programs to Help Boost Student Achievement

February 17, 2012 09:30 AM
Forest Park, IL...Proviso Township High Schools is continuing to work to promote higher achievement by offering Supplemental Educational Services (SES).

Supplemental Educational Services are free tutoring services. The program offers students extra help in academic subjects such as reading, language arts, and mathematics.

"The goals of our SES program is to ensure that we provide students with resources to increase their academic achievement, provide options to parents to help them ensure that their children receive a quality education, and to provide support for the district as we work toward the goals outlined in our school improvement plans," said Dr. Cheryl Pruitt, PTHS 209 Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction. "Our students and parents have various tutoring options that are available to students at no charge. We encourage our students and parents to take full advantage of the opportunity to improve student skills and raise overall achievement."

SES services are provided outside the regular school day—before or after school, on weekends, or in the summer. The program offers students who qualify a chance to get the extra academic help and individual instruction they may need. Studies suggest that academically based programs offered outside the school day can help students improve their achievement and work habits. Tutoring helps students by building on the learning that takes place during the school day.

Parents and students still have an opportunity to sign up for tutoring throughout the year.  Tutoring provides students a safe, nurturing environment outside of school; and by helping individual students improve, SES also supports teachers’ and principals’ efforts to improve student achievement in their schools.
