Odyssey is fortunate to qualify as a Title I school. This schoolwide program grants us additional federal money to ensure that all children meet the Georgia Standards of Excellence. This additional funding allowed us the opportunity to offer free math and reading tutoring to our students during the school year. While we attempted to serve all interested students in grades 2-8 last year, invitations were first sent out to children who were struggling in the classroom to meet state standards, as identified by their math and/or reading teachers. Students were invited to attend tutoring two days per week from 4:00-5:00 for an entire nine weeks cycle. At the conclusion of each nine weeks, teachers reevaluated all of their students and new invitations were sent home for another round.
