FRANKLIN—As part of Franklin City Public Schools’ effort to improve academic performance, the school district will offer free tutoring outside school to students from low-income families.

Parents whose children attend S.P. Morton Elementary School and are eligible have received information about the Supplemental Educational Services program and are asked to attend a fair 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17, in the gymnasium. Parents may select a tutor that serves their child’s grade level and provide instruction where the child needs help to pass the state Standards of Learning tests, particularly in reading and math.

Parents are asked to call Assistant Principal Lisa Francis at 562-5458 or Beverly Rabil, associate director of instruction at 569-8111, ext. 5602, for more information.
