The Homework Help initiative gives parents and students two new ways to improve academic performance.

The first is the ILC’s online math tutor for grades 7-10. It is a FREE, anonymous, and safe. Students can log onto www.homeworkhelp.ilc.org between 4:30 pm and 8:30 pm (Sunday-Thursday) using a board access code (provided by the school). They can then create a unique user name and password and connect with tutors. This program began September 20, 2009.

The second resource is the Ontario Educational Resource Bank (OERB) which is a product of e-Learning Ontario. It currently offers a growing number of online resources to teachers and students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, at no cost. There are thousands of teacher-shared resources, including lesson plans, activities, maps, and games, which are:

• aligned with the Ontario curriculum.
• searchable by grade, course/subject, strand, overall expectations, and keyword.
• easy to access and use.

To utilize the OERB you log onto www.elearningontario.ca click on the OERB button in upper left hand corner. Enter the username and password (provided by the school) and search for a given topic.
