Comprehensive Program of Services
Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Supplemental Instruction (SI) has been designed to assist students outside of the classroom with the courses that are indicated below. A review of classwork and homework is given to help students better understand course content. Instruction is open to any student; however, we encourage ACT 101 or Perkins program students to take advantage of these services. Supplemental Instruction groups meet weekly at scheduled times and locations in Building 14 (Campus Center).
Should you require additional information regarding Supplemental Instruction, please contact Mrs. Deborah Whitaker at 570-740-0772 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
