Over the past three fiscal years, the District committed approximately $33 million in federal stimulus funds to expand High-Impact Tutoring programming in math and literacy.

The District is fortunate to have the very best teachers in the nation. Our work to offer instructional supports to accelerate learning is particularly important as we continue to move from recovery to restoration.
