The Connecticut High-Dosage Tutoring Program
Given the extensive impact of the pandemic on student performance in middle-school and secondary math, states and districts across the country are seeking to identify and implement viable methods to accelerate learning. High-Dosage Tutoring (HDT) is a well-researched strategy to address learning loss, ensuring students have intensive, curriculum-aligned support to close academic gaps. The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) is allocating $10M in American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) funding to local education agencies (LEAs) to implement the Connecticut HDT Program in Grades 6-9, Mathematics in accordance with evidence-based guidelines.
The Connecticut HDT Program will provide successful applicants with the following resources and supports:
- Grant funding for the 2023-2024 school year
- A short list of trained, qualified tutor providers that have been vetted and approved by the Connecticut State Department of Education.
- Ongoing technical assistance, coaching, and participation in a Community of Practice provided by an external organization.
