This School Bet on High-Dosage Tutoring. It’s Working
From the article: "Fitting high-powered tutoring into the school day can be a mammoth undertaking for school leaders looking to help students recoup academic losses from the pandemic years. Nationwide, districts have struggled to find tutors and ensure the kids who most need extra help get it. But at College Achieve Public Charter School in Asbury Park, N.J., educators have not only figured out how to offer the program during the school day—they’re now seeing academic growth as a result of the carefully tailored, just-in-time intervention. Jodi Henderson McInerney, the executive director of the two-campus network, which includes a K-9 school serving 522 students, said that students in 5th grade through 7th grade, those the program targets, outperformed their peers from similar economic backgrounds in English/language arts on the state’s assessment. About 90 percent of students qualify for free and reduced-price meals, and about 60 percent are Black. Thirty-eight percent are Latino."
