Manhasset Special Education PTA (SEPTA) is proud to announce a free homework support program offered in all three Manhasset Public Schools this fall. The Adaptive Homework Club is designed for special education and regular education students that struggle to complete homework independently.
The program begins October 8 and runs until December. Each session is 60 minutes long and is being held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the both elementary schools and secondary school. Students in 3rd grade to 12th grades are welcomed to participate. Group size is limited to keep a high teacher to student ratio. Manhasset private tutoring firm Tutor Doctor is partnering with Manhasset SEPTA to provide all the staff and oversee the program.
