For parents and caregivers who are educating their children--either via distance learning or homeschooling--we have curated a list of free, well-established academic resources on a variety of subjects. Resources are broken down first by grade level, and then by subject.


Is the program open to students from all school districts and San Diego County at large?
Yes. Homework Help is available to all students.
Where can I go for in-person Homework Help?
Please refer to the DYH@L program flyer for a listing of the currently open homework centers:

Am I guaranteed a spot?
There are no guaranteed spots. We will help as many students as possible during the session allotted time.
Can high school or college students receive homework help?
They can receive help, but our homework help coaches are trained to assist Kindergarten to 8th grade students. If the library staff is unable to help, they will provide alternative resources that may help the student.
