Important No Child Left Behind Information for Moms
What does NCLB mean for families?
The NCLB Tutoring program gives low-income families the opportunity to choose free tutoring services for their children. The program offers families a chance to get their children the extra academic help and individual instruction they need.
How do I know whether my child is eligible?
Your school district is required to notify you if your child is eligible for NCLB Tutoring. Generally, your child is eligible for NCLB Tutoring if he or she: Receives free or reduced-price lunch and Attends a Title I school that has not made adequate yearly progress (AYP) for three years (in its second year of "school improvement status"). You can also visit www.freeNCLBtutoring.org.
Your local Parent Information and Resource Center. Find it at http://www.pirc-info.net/pircs.asp.
Your state. Visit our Free Tutoring by State page, select your state, and contact the NCLB Tutoring coordinator for your state. The U.S. Department of Education. Call them toll-free at 1-800-USA-LEARN (1-800-872-5327).
A local community group. Your place of worship, community center, parent organization, or other local group may also be able to help. You can also get a lot of information and ideas by talking to other parents and by attending parent-teacher conferences, parent organization meetings and other events at your child's school.
