In this edWebinar, we tackle the art of High-Impact Tutoring (HIT). Much like how Bob Ross takes viewers step by step to create a painting masterpiece, we guide you through crafting an impactful HIT program tailored to your district’s unique needs. Viewers learn about:

  • The rationale for painting your own HIT masterpiece: Understand the foundational pillars of HIT and why it’s crucial to add your district’s unique challenges
  • Using district data: Find out how district-specific data can be your palette to guide your HIT implementation
  • Establishing goals and metrics: Frame your HIT initiative with SMART goals and key performance indicators, setting the stage for a true masterpiece
  • Gaining administrative support: Learn how to secure the support you need through administrative buy-in, leveraging avenues like ESSER and state-level funding

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to elementary and middle school teachers and school and district leaders.
