Research shows that high-impact tutoring is unusually effective for accelerating K-12 student learning. In fact it is more effective than other interventions that have been tested and is effective across grade and content levels. High-impact tutoring occurs in numerous ways including in district or school developed programs, partnerships between districts and tutoring providers and partnerships between districts and higher education institutions (HEIs).
This Playbook aims to support HEIs in partnering with school districts to offer high-impact tutoring services. While HEI staff members are the primary audience, state educational officials, school district staff, and school administrators can leverage many of the resources in the Playbook.
This toolkit would not be possible without the expertise of many higher education institutions and tutoring program leaders across the country. The National Student Support Accelerator would like to thank and recognize the dedicated leaders who provided guidance, real-world examples, and feedback on this toolkit.
