House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: January 5, 2017 02:31 PM
From: Representative Robert Freeman
To: All House members
Subject: Proposed Legislation: Tutoring Program (Former House Bill 723)
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that would establish a tutoring program for Pennsylvania schools.

My legislation would require the State Board of Education to establish a “Tutoring Program” whereby students in eleventh and twelfth grades may tutor pupils in grades one through six. The participating tutors would receive academic credit for their services. The plan includes a provision to encourage eleventh and twelfth grade students who are not achieving as well as they could academically to participate if it is determined that serving as tutors would improve their own academic performance.

Tutoring is a time honored and cost effective way to enhance academic performance for both the student being tutored and the student who serves as a tutor.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Danielle Kline in my office by e-mail at dkline@pahouse.net or by telephone at 783-3815.
