the months galloping by for you, as they are for me. It is hard
to believe that the middle of October has passed. The month is
very special to me, as it was during October that both of my sons were
born. As a young parent I worried about how they would be as
adults. Now after many years, it is during this period that I

Special Funding for Online
Extended learning time can
help close the academic achievement gap for some students, and it is
an increasingly common component of school reform efforts. If you
reside in a district that uses Federally funded Title I funds in
their schools, you may be eligible. Title I funds provided
to certain schools and districts may be used to partner with eTutor to
offer instructional services to all or some of their students. This
option is generally a cost effective way for schools to extend the
school day. eTutor will work with schools and/or districts to
contract for this supplemental service.
