LAS VEGAS - Want to help your kids with their math homework, but need a refresher yourself? The Clark County School District is offering a program for parents to get their math skills back on track.
The Clark County School Board of Trustees will discuss Monday a plan to offer free math classes to parents to help them get more involved in their kids' schoolwork.
The classes are currently offered to teachers by the Southern Nevada Regional Professional Development Program.
Bill Hanlon, a former Clark County School District math teacher, is the director of the program that works with local teachers. Starting Oct. 8, he will start working with parents.
The idea is to teach parents math concepts, so they can help their kids with their schoolwork, regardless of grade level.
School Board Trustee Erin Cranor says learning at home is pivotal to a student's academic success.
