In the last two years, tutoring has emerged as an important tool in a superintendent’s kit to help students make up for lost instructional time. What has also emerged is the ability of tutoring to support the teaching profession and tackle turnover rates. Increasingly, districts are creatively using tutoring services to ease the burden on educators and empower them with an extra set of hands.

Watch this edLeader Panel to hear from education experts and district leaders on how tutoring does not just help students catch up, but supports the heart and soul of schools: teachers. This event showcases how district leaders from Orange Public Schools in New Jersey are innovatively leveraging tutoring services to alleviate the workload on teachers while supporting students with standards-aligned personalized instruction during the school day.

This recorded edLeader Panel is of interest to K-12 school and district leaders and education technology leaders.
