Kids can get extra help with school work through school-sponsored supplemental services such as tutoring, homework clubs or student study groups. Kids with disabilities or other delays may qualify for individualized education programs through their schools.
The No Child Left Behind Act requires schools that do not make adequate annual progress for three years in a row to provide supplemental services to students to help them succeed. These schools may offer tutoring before school, after school or at lunch. Some schools offer peer tutoring, while others have teachers tutor the students. Schools must provide student study teams for any students struggling academically or socially. The teams consist of adults who regularly interact with the students, find the students' learning obstacles and provide solutions for academic success.
