Summer Learning & Academic Help Opportunities

Take advantage of two summer learning opportunities as described below.

GCS Virtual Helpline

Who can receive tutoring on the Helpline? ANY GCS student from rising 3rd grade to 12th grade. This means students who just finished 2nd grade! What a great way to get a head start on 3rd grade!


What subject areas can students be tutored in on the Helpline? ELA for grades 3-12, Math for Grades 3-8, AND NC Math 1, 2, and 3!


Who are the tutors on the Helpline? We are extremely proud to share that 100% of our Helpline Tutor list are certified, full time, GCS staff members. This ensures continuity of content, instruction, and standards. If our tutors’ years of experience were to be combined, this figure would represent hundreds of years of GCS teaching experience and commitment!


What if students don’t have a GCS-issued device over the Summer? No problem! The attached flyers give instructions on how to access Clever and our Pearl virtual tutoring platform on a personal device. As long as students have their student ID/lunch number and password, they will be able to book and attend tutoring sessions!


When can students access the GCS Virtual Helpline? The GCS Virtual Helpline reopens for Summer on June 24th. It will run Mondays-Thursdays from 2-6pm until August 1st. It will be closed on the week of July 4th along with district offices. Students must sign up for a session 24 hours in advance of the time they would like to be tutored. This ensures that our tutors have ample time to prepare for sessions.
