At our school we have after school programs. Teachers are paid to work with
students in small groups on reading and/or math skills two times a week for
an hour and a half. At first, teachers were paid with grant money, but I
think that now it is written into our budget (but I'm not sure). We also
have Reading for Life Long Learning which is a program that brings local
university students together with our students. In addition, we have a
tutoring program which enables our middle school and high school students to
earn community service credits by tutoring our elementary students and
helping them with their homework. All this happens on Tuesdays and
Thursdays after school.

Subject: NCLB- I need ideas-Help
Dear Art Supporters, Due to No Child Left Behind, the axe fell yesterday.
They want to add 3 reading teachers to our middle school and are reducing
all exploration or elective choices, some they are eliminating. . . I need
some ideas to bring to our meeting to counteract the cuts. We are being
forced to do this quickly, we have a meeting tomorrow morning for
brainstorming. Your help would be appreciated.
