LYNN-The Lynn Public Schools are collaborating with Serving People In Need to provide elementary-aged students who are homeless or at-risk for homelessness with an evening tutoring program.

The program, which began with programs last summer and into the 2009-10 school year, is funded by the McKinney Vento Act and supplemental Title I funding. This provides the program with teacher salaries, curriculum materials and durable equipment such as tables, chairs and a file cabinet.

    I believe it is awesome providing those in need of a boost with the appropriate services. Question: Who is determining whether the program is successful? In other words are grades and test scores improving ?
