Fort Wayne Community Schools Academic Help

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.

Study Connection
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.

About Education

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 Project Reads or call 423-6447
