This is a report on the Summer Tutoring Program for Kids that runs during July and August every year in libraries, schools and community centres across P.E.I. The purpose of this program is to support the learning objectives of the school system by offering an alternative learning environment during the summer months. It gives children with reading difficulties a chance to maintain their literacy skills over the summer months and provides relevant summer career employment for qualified students. Tutoring is offered in French, English and English as an Additional Language.
This report consists of three parts: The first part includes a description of the program, its purpose, benefits, staffing, and supporters; the second part is the program coordinator's report for 2008; and the third part consists of parents' and children's evaluations of the program.
