ASD Summer Tutoring Support

  • The Anchorage School District is extending summer learning with a free, optional opportunity for K-6 students to receive support in reading and math.  Your student will use the online programs Lexia and/or Math Whizz while being monitored and supported by an ASD teacher. The teacher will communicate progress to families regularly through email and provide tutoring support to students as needed through Zoom or phone calls.

     

    This tutoring program will start Summer, May 26 – June 30, with a possible extension based on student participation and is available to all ASD students in grades K-6.  If your student has a current IEP or 504, we will have staff available to support.  Please call or email with questions to grant_leroy@asdk12.org or susel_allison@asdk12.org.
