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.

WEBINAR 1: RESEARCH EVIDENCE AND BEST PRACTICES

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.
