Guidance, checklists, and templates designed for school districts interested in implementing High-Impact Tutoring in their districts
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (August 10, 2021) — Last week, the National Student Support Accelerator at Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University published the “District Playbook” to help state education officials, district/school administrators, and nonprofit leaders develop and implement “high-impact tutoring” programs.
A practical, research-backed tool — one of several interrelated research-backed tools provided by the National Student Support Accelerator — the Playbook refers to several (recently updated) complementary resources:
- Tutoring Program Database — searchable database of 175+ tutoring programs to help districts/schools identify potential tutoring providers.
- Tutoring Cost Calculator — to help districts/schools understand key design features that drive tutoring costs and plan accordingly.
- Updated material includes information briefs on funding and policy considerations.
- Research Agenda — synthesis of tutoring research highlighting the drivers of impact.
The Playbook is made possible by many educators, education leaders, researchers, thought-leaders, funders, parents, and community members, and draws from research and knowledge of districts, tutoring providers, and other experts across the country.
The bottom line: Research shows that high-impact tutoring is unusually effective for accelerating student learning — more effective than any other intervention, and effective across grade and content levels.
