As hard as it might be to imagine, Johnson County schools have been in session for nearly a month. But already some students are falling behind their classmates.
They struggle to understand math concepts or have trouble with reading. Without extra help, these students will fall increasingly behind as the year progresses.
Fortunately adults in our community have the opportunity to help fill in some of the gaps that plague children who attend our area schools. Programs such as OASIS tutoring in Greenwood and the Franklin Education Connection’s Study Buddy program offer organized ways for individuals to make a difference in students’ lives. Other school districts can use volunteer help, too.
