The City of Midwest City Neighborhoods in Action Center is offering free after school tutoring for elementary school students in grades K-5.
The program is designed to help children impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Tutoring sessions will focus on math and reading skills. They will take place at the Neighborhoods in Action Center located at 1124 N. Douglas Blvd. in Midwest City. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from sessions.
It is open to Midwest City residents and includes restrictions on income.
The city recently hired tutors and started accepting applications last week and will begin the tutoring program as soon as they have students signed up, said Terri Craft, grants manager for Midwest City.
Craft said they expect to offer tutoring from 4 -6 p.m. Monday through Friday. They have not determined how many spaces will be available.
Midwest City received about $1.7 million in funding from the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. It was part of a larger grant through CARES Act. The funds must be used for after school assistance, job and career training, and rehabilitation projects for public facilities.
The city has used funding to operate a Boys and Girls Club program at Crutcho School.
