$41 Million Boost for New Jersey Student Achievement Through High Impact Tutoring
The New Jersey Department of Education has earmarked approximately $41 million for High Impact Tutoring aimed at accelerating student learning in nearly 240 school districts statewide.
The future of student education in New Jersey just got brighter with the announcement of a significant investment in High Impact Tutoring. The New Jersey Department of Education's initiative distributes preliminary grants of roughly $41 million to enhance learning acceleration through proven educational strategies. This substantial funding is expected to touch lives in approximately 240 school districts, bolstering efforts to scale tutoring services and educational support.
Dr. Angelica Allen-McMillan, Acting Commissioner of Education, emphasized the depth of this commitment: "With the award of High Impact Tutoring grants to our schools, we are not just investing in classrooms, we are investing in the potential of every student,” she said. Allen-McMillan underlined the initiative's alignment with the state's dedication to advancing academic progress for students throughout New Jersey.
The grants will support a variety of research-backed approaches that contribute to meaningful learning advancements. These include one-on-one or small group tutoring sessions, curriculum aligned with state learning standards, and individualized, data-informed instruction. Tutors, expected to be highly qualified, will work in close coordination with teachers to reinforce educational outcomes.
This infusion of federal funds, allocated in New Jersey’s Fiscal Year 2024 budget, underscores a significant push toward educational excellence in the wake of challenging times for academic institutions and students alike.
