2019-2020 Online Tutoring Referral

Please review the service details and guidelines below before submitting an online tutoring referral:

Eligibility

  • Funding for Foster Youth Services can only be used for students (ages 5-21) residing within Los Angeles County who have an open DCFS/Dependency court or an open Probation/Delinquency court case, living in a suitable placement.
  • We do not service students in Kin-GAP (Kinship Guardianship Assistance Payment Program) at this time. 

Service Details

  • Students may be eligible to receive up to 20 hours of academic support with a review for potential additional hours, which may end prior to end of the fiscal year (June 30, 2020).
  • Services are designed to be one-on-one in-home tutoring with adult supervision.
  • Due to funding, referrals are prioritized based on highest need of tutoring services. Students in 11th and 12th grade and students in a group home, juvenile hall, or camp receive highest priority.
  • Requests for higher-level course tutoring require proof of coursework prior to referral assignments. E-mail supporting documentation to fys_tutoring@lacoe.edu upon referral submission.

 

Referral Submission Guidelines

  • Check with the student’s school or school district for possible tutoring services prior to submitting a referral.
  • Refer a student ONLY if there is a SIGNIFICANT NEED for services. Services are based on need and funding availability.
  • DO NOT refer a student if they are already receiving tutoring.
  • DO NOT refer a student who has not agreed or their caregiver has not agreed to the tutoring services.

Assembly Bill 854Assembly Bill 854 states that services are to be coordinated not duplicated. Therefore, if a student is currently receiving tutoring through their school or district  referral should not be submitted.
