Fort Wayne Community Schools - Academic Help for Students
The first step in finding help for your student is communicating with the teacher(s). A survey of FWCS principals pointed to communication as a key factor in improving student achievement. Teachers are available either by phone, or e-mail, and parents are encouraged to contact them. Click here to visit the Parents information page and access a menu listing all FWCS schools. Click on the school name to connect. There you will be able to see information about your child's school. You may also visit EdModo to learn what is happening in your students classes. Simply choose the "I'm a Parent link" and follow the directions to login.
Study Connection, a service of the FWCS Community Programs Department, combines the volunteer power of the community with public education to deliver a cost-effective and efficient program to help FWCS students bolster their academics. The Study Connection office recruits volunteers to work with FWCS students identified by teachers as needing one-to-one tutoring assistance. Students and tutors meet after school, one day each week for one hour during the school year.

Free Community Resources
The following is a partial list of resources, in no particular order, available in the Fort Wayne community where students and parents/families can find academic help. No endorsement or recommendation by FWCS should be inferred from the presence or absence of any listing.
Through its Student Program, Project READS matches trained volunteers with students in grades K-3 who are striving to reach grade-level reading goals. For one hour each week during the school year, tutors, who also serve as mentors and role models, work with students either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups to improve literacy skills. Academic progress is measured through year-end assessments-and in the smiles of proud graduates! For more information, please visit www.abouteducation.org or call 423.6447
