Monitoring Outcomes & Continuous Improvement: District Leaders Talk Tutoring

High-impact tutoring is one of the most powerful learning tools available to school districts today. Research suggests that when they’re implemented with fidelity, high-impact tutoring programs can significantly compensate for lost learning time and drive progress in addressing educational inequities. In this session, Jeff Livingston, Co-Founder of The Center for Education Market Dynamics (CEMD), will moderate a panel discussion with district leaders from Chicago and Denver about using tutoring as a lever for student learning acceleration.

Panelists Dr. Simone Wright, Associate Chief of Academics for Denver Public Schools, and Corey Morrison, Director of Mathematics for Chicago Public Schools, will provide insights into launching and implementing learning acceleration initiatives like tutoring. In particular, they’ll discuss the key factors in building a district culture of iterative improvement, and the implications of this approach for the success of tutoring programs.
