We are pleased to inform you that your child has been considered to participate in a free after-school and/or summer tutoring program called Reading for Change! RFC is a local, free reading program that takes place at 105 South Market Street (top floor) in downtown Troy. RFC is focused on helping your child grow academically as well as in all areas of life. The program consists of structured, one-on-one tutoring through committed, stable and encouraging relationships with supportive adults. It also includes homework help, a number of reading activities, and a hardy snack. Each RFC student is evaluated periodically throughout the school year to access whether the RFC program is meeting his/ her needs.
RFC’s reading tutors are trained volunteers that come from our community. RFC takes all of its volunteers through a comprehensive background security check. Additionally, all tutoring will take place in a group environment and no child will be left alone with an adult volunteer. It is important to the program’s success that your child attends RFC at the proper time and is not picked up before we are finished with our session.
We have included in this packet an application for registering your child for RFC. If you are interested in your child taking part in this free reading program, please completely fill out the form below. You will be notified if your child has been accepted into the program.
By signing submitting this form, you also give the faculty of Troy City Schools permission to discuss your child’s grades, scores, and progress with the program director. This is an important factor so we can best help your child by working with teachers to focus on your child’s individual needs. Our commitment is to make sure this will be done in a confidential manner.
If you have any questions about the program or the application, you can contact me at 937-239-8350 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! We look forward to working with your child and helping him or her succeed in school!
Please turn in your application as soon as possible to ensure your child has a place in the program!
