LARGO - Pinellas County Schools has been approved by the Florida Department of Education to be a state-approved Supplemental Educational Services (SES) provider. SES providers offer free tutoring, outside of normal school hours, to children in Title I schools who have scored at Level 1 or Level 2 on the reading or math FCAT tests.
Pinellas SES tutors will be highly qualified/certified teachers and tutoring sessions will be conveniently held on school sites. Tutoring sessions will focus on giving students the skills they need to meet academic expectations.
Eligible students will receive 20 one-hour tutoring sessions between Oct. 15, 2012 and March 2013. Additional information about Pinellas County Schools Supplemental Education Services will be mailed to parents of eligible students in September 2012.
If the number of students requesting services are high or if funds are limited, services may be prioritized for the students with the greatest academic need as determined by assessment scores.
