Region 10 offers professional development opportunities and support for districts and schools to develop and implement High Impact Tutoring programs. As part of HB 4545, Region 10 will support schools with high-quality tutor training throughout the year.
High Impact Tutoring Workshop Series: Data indicates that school closure and school year disruptions resulted in unfinished learning for many students in our region and across the state. HB 4545 has challenged us with forming plans to accelerate instruction to increase student learning gains. As we look to the future, it will be important to stand up High Impact Tutoring programs that not only satisfy HB 4545, but ensure that all students, in all grade levels, are prepared for on-grade level learning. Leaders will experience new learning in a design lab setting where they can develop a from-scratch program or revise an existing program. Our program aim is to align best practice and develop a High Impact Tutoring Program.
