On March 22, 2023, Governor Lamont announced plans to launch Intensive Mathematics Tutoring Program for Students in Grades 6-9 to address learning loss from pandemic.
The Connecticut High-Dosage Tutoring Program is a new statewide program for students in grades 6 to 9 that will provide intensive tutoring in mathematics to accelerate learning and address learning loss resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. To support the creation of this program, the Connecticut State Department of Education is allocating $10 million from its share of federal COVID-19 recovery funds provided through the American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund. The dedication of this funding represents a continued commitment by the Lamont administration and the State Department of Education to invest in programs with a demonstrable and time-tested record of impact on student learning.
The Connecticut HDT Program will provide successful applicants with the following resources and supports:
- Grant funding for the 2023-2024 school year
- A short list of trained, qualified tutor providers that have been vetted and approved by the Connecticut State Department of Education.
- Ongoing technical assistance, coaching, and participation in a Community of Practice provided by an external organization.
