Tutoring Services – Subject area tutoring

Tutoring services are offered in content areas such as English Language Arts, Math and Science and a host of other areas. Tutoring can occur during the school day during non-class time such as Flex Time in middle school however it is very difficult to schedule during the school day. If a student is not suggested for tutoring through the program student monitoring system, there is an opportunity to request tutoring by completing the “Request for Tutoring” form or by calling the Indian Education Office.

Request for tutoring by appointment

Students and parents may request tutoring services during non-school times at a time that is convenient for the student. Students and parent may contact the Indian Education Office or complete the request for tutoring services form.

ACT Preparation

Students will then take another practice test to help determine ACT proficiency.

Representatives from public and private colleges will be available to answer questions about their college. There will also be a diverse student panel, information on ACT/SAT test prep, scholarship information, college admissions process, and the Minnesota Dream Act.

Student Progress Monitoring

The Indian Education staff attempts to monitor progress for the students in the program however, given that students are located in almost all of the schools within District 196, the task is very difficult. We try to work closely with our school counselors at the secondary level and the school social workers at the elementary level as much as possible. We ask that parents contact the Indian Education Office should they desire to have their student on a progress monitoring system.
