Kansas college delivers academic support

Academic support is an integral component of postsecondary education, but such services can be especially critical to the success of developmental students.  At Kansas City Kansas Community College-Leavenworth Center, incoming students placed into dev ed at varying rates; nearly one-quarter of students placed in reading, more than one-third in writing, and close to 90% in math.  To better meet the needs faced by these underprepared students, the college offers several academic support services: peer tutoring, academic labs, retention alert, and workshops.
