Homework Lab

Homework Lab is a supervised setting that offers students an opportunity to complete their homework, while receiving assistance from a certified teacher. The lab meets each week, Monday through Thursday from 2:50-3:50 pm. In order to cover the expenses for this lab, there is a monthly fee that is determined by the number of actual lab days during each month - the fee breaks down to $3.00 per day. The month of October will have 19 lab days, thus the cost for the month will be $57.00. It starts on September 29th - Payment and forms are due by Friday, September 26.
