RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stride Learning Solutions is proud to announce that Stride Tutoring has been named as a qualified, pre-approved vendor for the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE)’s High-Impact Tutoring program, part of the state’s effort to respond to student’s increased academic needs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
NJDOE’s Learning Acceleration: High-Impact Tutoring initiative provides targeted grant funding to local education agencies (LEAs) for high-dosage, intensive tutoring for students, with a priority on learners in grades three and four. The pre-approved vendor list allows the state and LEAs to optimize available grant funding for targeted tutoring by pointing them towards vendors and organizations that meet established, research-based criteria.
“The inclusion of Stride Tutoring within the NJDOE program speaks to the quality of our offering, which is backed by Stride’s more than two decades of experience in education delivery,” said Jennifer Moore, General Manager for Stride Tutoring. “Since well before the pandemic, Stride has been committed to keeping learners academically on track. We look forward to partnering with educators across New Jersey to continue this work during this time of unprecedented need.”
A portfolio brand of Stride, Inc. (NYSE: LRN), Stride Tutoring offers online tutoring support to school districts and directly to consumers. Stride Tutoring connects students with experienced teachers specializing in math, science, English, and many other subjects. Stride’s personalized tutoring helps learners maintain their academic pace, catch up, or even surge ahead as tutors customize lesson plans to each student’s specific learning style, strengths, and interests.
For schools and districts, Stride Tutoring offers a variety of scalable solutions for high-dosage tutoring, including the ability to schedule small-group sessions during the school day and providing detailed student- and school-level reports. Districts can also feel confident in the evidence-based nature of Stride Tutoring’s offerings.
