Seeking School Districts to Scale High-Dosage Tutoring

The University of Chicago Education Lab and MDRC are recruiting one to three school districts to participate in the Personalized Learning Initiative, which is scaling and studying the benefits of high-dosage tutoring. Participating districts will receive technical assistance and funding up to $500 per student to expand tutoring.

The goal of the project is twofold:

  • To help districts scale personalized academic supports—like high-dosage tutoring and sustainable tutoring—to reach students who urgently need it.
  • To study these interventions, to ensure that they are supporting students and to learn what works best for which students.

The Personalized Learning Initiative is supported by Accelerate, a nonprofit, research-based, national initiative that seeks to embed high-impact tutoring and personalized learning in K–12 public schools.
