We joined with other NYC funders to create a strategic partnership to devise and implement a plan of action to bring high-dosage, high-impact tutoring to New York City – something needed to address the continued and deep learning losses resulting from the pandemic. The partnership, with the guidance and leadership of TNTP and the support of the NYC Public Schools, chose ExpandED to serve as a backbone organization, creating partnerships between tutoring providers and New York City public schools to design, implement and continuously improve tutoring programs grounded in research and targeting students at the margins. Thus far, 3,300 students received high-impact tutoring during the 2022-23 school year, expanding to 5,000 students during the 2023-24 school year.
ExpandEd is eliminating barriers to accessing effective tutoring. Ultimately, it will transfer ownership of scaling effective tutoring to a dedicated team at the NYC Public Schools.
