ORADELL, NJ - (Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - Huntington Learning Center will host its annual Huntington School Services Convention June 6, 2013, at the Hotel Sax in Chicago, Illinois. Huntington School Services franchisees, staff and corporate employees will come together to discuss best practices for quality instruction, new marketing initiatives, annual results, goals for the coming years, and more. The theme of this year's convention -- the fourth in the company's history -- is "Team up for Triumph."
Huntington was one of the nation's first supplemental education services providers to offer federally funded tutoring services (through the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001) to students at eligible schools, and has provided free tutoring to thousands of students nationwide.
Huntington launched the Huntington School Services franchise in 2009 to help students nationwide improve their academic performance and increase test scores.
With more than 30 states now holding waivers from NCLB provisions, Huntington still stands behind its results and is working to continue offering services where it is still available. In addition, Huntington has refocused and begun to partner with non-profit organizations to continue to provide much needed tutoring services to students who deserve it.
Dr. Raymond Huntington, founder and chairman of Huntington, said the company remains committed to their work to help the country's neediest students.
"The waivers have affected our ability to provide instruction to this student population, but we continue to believe in the importance of this work and will support our Huntington School Services franchisees in any way possible," said Dr. Huntington. "The 2013 convention will be a great opportunity for all of us to not only talk about the most effective practices when working with these students, but also brainstorm ways to partner with private organizations and seek other sources of funding so we can continue to help the students who need us most."
The 2013 Huntington School Services Convention will also feature an awards ceremony and honor franchisees with the following awards: Excellence in Reading Education, Excellence in Math Education, Greatest Number of Students Serviced and Spotlight on Achievement.
