Reshaping Academic Support With High Impact Tutoring for Students With the Greatest Needs
With the continued disruption of learning for K–12 students due to the ongoing pandemic, getting students on grade level is an urgent need for most districts. Even after heroic efforts by educators to continue teaching students remotely, in person, or hybrid learning model, many learners have fallen behind. The impacted students are the ones who were underserved before the pandemic: low-income students, students without access to technology, special education students, and English Language learners. In this session, join Dr. Carmen Coleman, Jefferson County Public Schools’ Chief Academic Officer as she shares how her urban district is reshaping academic support for students using high-impact tutoring. After incorporating the Design Principles for Effective Tutoring from the Annenberg Institute into their supplemental support, the district demonstrated accelerated, double-digit rates of growth relative to national norms in both math and reading on the NWEA MAP Growth Assessments.
