Description: The U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) ED COVID-19 Handbook highlights tutoring as a key strategy for supporting student academic needs and for addressing the impact of lost instructional time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds from the American Rescue Plan can be used to implement high-quality tutoring.

In this third webinar of a three-part series on high-quality tutoring, presenters will share an overview of best practices from research in K-12 tutoring, describe how math and reading goals are addressed in the context of a tutoring program, and provide an example of implementing a reading tutoring program from a district in California.

Participants will:

  • Learn about research findings and best practices related to systematic tutoring, focused on math and reading outcomes
  • Explore key issues with respect to delivery of reading and math tutoring interventions, including tutor selection, instructional content, assessment of student progress, and tutor oversight
  • Hear examples of reading and mathematics tutoring as designed by one national service tutoring program and as implemented by program personnel at one district
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions and receive resources to guide their own work

Audience: The target audience for this event 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.
