Let us help make the second semester a successful one!

About after School Tutoring
     The SMMHS Learning Center is limited in the amount of students that we can help after school.  We have both limited space and a limited amount of available tutors.  We have several measures in place to help insure that our services are provided fairly and equitably for all students referred.  We sincerely request that parents and students understand and abide by these measures:

1. A student must be referred by an academic teacher for services.
The teacher will contact the Learning Center via phone, email, or in person to make the referral.
2.  The Learning Center will schedule the student for a date/time to get after school help.  
Students are normally scheduled for ONE day a week. (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday)
3.  A referral guarantees no more than 3 consecutive sessions.
The Learning Center cannot provide continuous tutoring for any one student.  Our main objective is to assist students temporarily on an as needed basis.  Parents who want their children to have regular and continuing assistance should consider hiring a private tutor.  
4.  Students will not be limited on the number of referrals they can receive duirng the year.
They may be referred by the same teacher or other teachers at various times during the year.  We will fill spaces on an individual basis according to specific students needs and the resources we have available to meet those needs.
5.  After school sessions begin at 2:30 and the Learning Center closes at 4:00 PM.
We need to know if a student will/will not be present for the full 90 minutes.  If not then we may be able to schedule more students for shorter sessions.  Please do not come into the building to pick up a student after tutoring.  The student can leave through the high school or middle school entrance and you may pick them up outside.
6.  Please do us the courtesy of letting us know if a student will not be coming to their scheduled tutoring session.
Other students are always waiting for services.  If you are not going to be here, please allow us to offer that space to someone else.
