GaDOE & Partners Providing K-12 Tutoring to Address Lost Learning Opportunities
Thursday, September 28th, 2023
The Georgia Department of Education is offering new tutoring resources to students in grades K-12 during the 2023-2024 school year, as part of its overall strategy to continue addressing lost learning opportunities.
Tutoring in grades K-8 will be provided through a partnership with the AmeriCorps tutoring programs Reading Corps and Math Corps. Trained tutors will be placed at select schools to deliver evidence-based tutoring.
In grades 9-12, GaDOE will launch the GaTutor program, available through Georgia Virtual Learning.
“We are committed to investing in our state's academic recovery and addressing lost learning opportunities as a result of the pandemic, by providing direct academic interventions to our students," State School Superintendent Richard Woods. “We know it is possible for our students to regain lost ground and will continue to make investments as a state to ensure they do so. I wish to thank the Georgia General Assembly, AmeriCorps, and our Georgia Virtual Learning staff for their partnership in this effort to extend targeted, high-quality tutoring services to students throughout the state."
