The Homework Assistance Program is offered to students in grades second through sixth. Qualified teachers assist students in similar grade levels for a period of time after the teacher’s scheduled day is over. The teachers are available to answer questions, clarify instructions, and monitor progress, but not individually tutor students.
The program days are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45 to 4:30 or 4:45 p.m. depending on the age of the students. You may choose to enroll your student two or three days a week.
The students are taken to a central place and given the time to have a snack brought from home and relax before the Homework Assistance Program time begins. The teachers take the students to their rooms starting at 3:45 p.m. Extended Day students are delivered to the program rooms by Extended Day staff. The second graders may be picked up at the front of the Lower School building in the carpool area at 4:30 p.m. The third through sixth graders may be picked up in the same location at 4:45 p.m. Students enrolled in Extended Dayare picked up by the Extended Day staff. Students have this time to complete the daily homework, read for reading minutes, work on math memorization and study for tests.
Because teachers and a Homework Assistance Program Coordinator are paid for assisting the students, fees are assessed on a monthly basis. Fees are charged on a monthly basis even if there is an uneven number of attendance days or if students do not attend each session for the month. However, the fees for the months of November, December, January, March and April when there is one week less of school plus in April the week of achievement testing are three- fourths the fee.
