This three-part webinar series will address high-quality tutoring as a strategy for accelerating learning after disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Audience

The target audience for this series includes local education agency (LEA) staff and school-level staff who have questions about choosing and implementing tutoring programs or approaches and state education agency (SEA) staff who have been tasked with distributing and vetting the use of ARP funds and seek information on evidence-based practices to assist districts and schools in choosing tutoring approaches.

As states and districts use their federal recovery American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds to accelerate learning over the next several school years, high-quality tutoring is a promising way to address the impact of lost instructional time due to COVID-19 and address student academic needs. Tutoring is highlighted as a key strategy in the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) ED COVID-19 Handbook, which provides strategies that can be supported by ARP funds to address opportunity gaps exacerbated by the pandemic.

In this 90-minute webinar, presenters will discuss the research base for systematic, high-quality tutoring and share a case study of how one nonprofit high school math tutoring program enacts evidence-based principles.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the research base for high-quality tutoring
  • Explore critical questions to ask when assessing local conditions and planning to implement tutoring programs
  • Hear examples of best practices in tutoring, as applied through one program, and how it is implemented in an example district
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions and receive resources to guide their own work

In the second webinar, participants will build upon knowledge and research presented in the first webinar and become familiar with specific evidence-based tools developed by Brown University’s National Student Support Accelerator, which facilitates district planning, launch, and continuous improvement of effective tutoring programs.

Participants will:

  • Learn about factors to consider during four phases related to planning and implementing tutoring programs and evidence-based tools to use in launching and engaging in continuous improvement
  • Hear examples and lessons learned during the four phases from pilot sites as they implemented tutoring programs
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions and receive resources to guide their own work
