High-impact tutoring and small group instruction can give students the attention they clearly deserve while fostering the resilience they dearly need. Many school districts want to provide differentiated instruction and support to accelerate learning gains for all students but lack the internal resources to pull it off at scale.

This edWebinar provides educators and school and district leaders with information and strategies for delivering high-impact tutoring at scale, regardless of staff and budget. The session covers best practices for evaluating tutoring partners and strategies for launching a district-led tutoring program to reach the most significant number of learners.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to school and district leaders of the elementary through middle school grades.
