Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, schools that fail to have enough of their kids meet various proficiency benchmarks face a series of escalating sanctions.

Schools that fail to make the grade for two years must pay to offer their kids free tutoring. Most of the tutoring is offered by private firms, and parents have the option of choosing the services that are right for them.

Parents whose kids attend the schools that must offer tutoring will be notified next week, and the San Diego Unified School District has scheduled a series of fairs where the private tutoring providers will show off their services.

Here is a list of the locations and times of the fairs:

  • Encanto Elementary School, 622 65th St.: July 21 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Spanish translation available.
  • Montgomery Middle School, 2470 Ulric St.: July 24 5 to 8 p.m. Spanish and Vietnamese translation available.
