Spring ISD trustees approved an about $3 million online tutoring program for students funded by federal coronavirus aid grants at their Nov. 9 meeting.
The district’s contract with Intervene K-12 for High Dosage Tutoring was approved unanimously by trustees under the consent agenda, which is voted on in one motion. The program will be available online for students to receive academic help in groups of about four students per instructor.
“We will have the opportunity to serve 28 of our campuses five days a week in small groups,” Chief of Innovation and Equity Lupita Hinojosa said at a Nov. 6 board workshop.
The tutoring program will be funded using the district’s Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III federal funds received through the American Rescue Plan Act. The tutoring program was first implemented at SISD as part of a pilot program in the spring 2020-2021 semester.
"We are really excited to be able to put our ESSER funds to good use to be able to serve our tier two and tier three students,” Hinojosa said.
