High-Impact Tutoring (HIT) Initiative

Overview of OSSE HIT Initiative

The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) is leading a three-year, $35 million investment in scaling and supporting high-impact tutoring (HIT) across the District, with a particular focus on at-risk students and other students who experienced disrupted instruction during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This investment is a core part of the city’s recovery strategy, given the strong body of evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of HIT as an intervention that can produce dramatic gains in student learning. Through this investment, OSSE strives to accelerate learning for these students.

Grant competitions are central to furthering this initiative, Approximately $30 million has been awarded since 2021 to support existing, successful, evidence-based tutoring programs to scale; to deliver strategic program supports to local education agencies and tutoring providers; and to conduct a robust program evaluation of the HIT initiative.
