Breakout Session 1.3: High-impact tutoring successes: current impact and future sustainability
Across the state, elementary schools use high-impact tutoring strategies to help accelerate student’s growth in foundational literacy. This initiative is piloting math this school year and is investigating the feasibility of expanding to math for 2024-2025. These strategies are employed to reinforce core instruction and provide supplemental instructional support to an increased number of students. With ESSER funding, districts have hired additional tutors and have hired existing tutors and instructional assistants to deliver this support to students. With the data showing positive results, districts are looking at opportunities to continue these successful strategies.
In this session, Vance County Schools, Orange County Schools, and North Carolina Education Corps share successful high-impact tutoring strategies, the importance of tie-in to MTSS, 2022-2023 impact data, and considerations for sustained funding.
Participants and presenters will explore the following questions:
What strategies are used in successful high-impact tutoring?
How are these strategies increasing the number of students receiving supplemental instructional support?
How do these strategies fit into MTSS?
What does the 2022-2023 data tell us about the impact of high-impact tutoring on student growth?
How are districts funding this work now, and what funding sources and staffing strategies can be used post-ESSER?
