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 90-minute webinar, presenters will discuss tutoring as a way to address opportunity gaps exacerbated by the pandemic. They will share about evidence-based tools developed by Brown University’s National Student Support Accelerator that facilitate district planning, launch, and continuous improvement of effective tutoring programs.

Participants will:

  • Learn about factors to consider during four phases related to planning for and implementing tutoring programs
  • Explore evidence-based tools to use when launching tutoring programs and engaging in continuous improvement with districts and schools
  • 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

This is the second in a three-part webinar series on high-quality tutoring as a strategy for accelerating learning after disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Subscribe to the REL West mailing list to receive updates on this webinar series.

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.
