ALL In Tutoring
Starting in the fall of 2023, Lynchburg City Schools (LCS) will expand tutoring efforts during the day for students in grades 3-8 as part of the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE)’s ALL In VA tutoring program.
Designed to combat learning loss brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the initiative provides a targeted approach to accelerating students to grade level in reading and math. The program is part of the VDOE’s three-pronged approach to accelerate post-pandemic student success by addressing attendance, literacy, and learning.
Research on tutoring shows that, on average, high-intensity academic tutoring can increase student achievement by an additional three to 15 months of learning. High-intensity tutoring has also been proven to increase student engagement and grades across all subjects.
Students will receive varying levels of tutoring support based on their SOL scores. Trained tutors, to include licensed teachers, instructional assistants, retired teachers, and community members, will conduct regular sessions in small groups in order to maximize focused help for each student.
To increase effectiveness, LCS will offer daily tutoring sessions for sustained periods of time during the school day—up to 60 minutes a day or a minimum of three hours a week. Schools will adjust schedules to create designated tutoring periods.
Implementation of the ALL In Tutoring program will look different at each school. The program is designed to be flexible—the goal is to boost student learning while meeting the needs of the school community. Reach out to your child’s school with questions!
