Overview of OSSE Hit Initiative

The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) is leading a three-year, $40 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.

The current HIT Scaling Grant competition is part of furthering this initiative, as was the $20 million awarded in May 2022 to support existing, successful, evidence-based tutoring programs to scale and to provide funding to organizations delivering strategic program supports and program evaluation services for high-impact tutoring. See below the below list of documents and links for more information about the previous grant opportunity and the awardees.
