FCPS In-Person High-Impact Tutoring
FCPS offers in-person tutoring to support students' learning needs and academic progress.
High-impact tutoring pairs no more than five students with a tutor who meets with them consistently. The tutor targets specific learning needs and regularly assesses their learning and progress. The tutor collaborates with teachers and parents to ensure effective and continued progress.
FCPS began offering this service at select schools (based on the learning needs of students) in the 2022-23 school year. Our in-person tutoring effort is part of an ongoing plan to address learning loss tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is part of an FCPS strategic plan goal related to academic growth and excellence; ensuring students can access and participate in early intervention, academic support, and other support as needed. Students are identified for this program by their school.
FCPS is adding to our roster of tutors. High-impact tutoring is currently in place in approximately 30% of schools. FCPS will expand this support to as many schools as possible based on the number of tutors we’re able to hire.
