Maryland Tutoring Corps: Scaling High-Quality, School Day Tutoring Statewide


The Maryland Tutoring Corps grant program, driven by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), aims to address pandemic-induced learning loss in math proficiency among secondary students by leveraging the one-time ESSER III Funds. This grant program provides the resources to seed permanent strategic partnerships with local education agencies (LEAs), groups of LEAs, institutions of higher education (IHEs), non-profit organizations, and/or county/city governments. The primary focus of this initiative is to facilitate the creation and implementation of high-quality, school day tutoring programs, with a specific emphasis on students who have not yet demonstrated proficiency in math. This initiative aims to focus on historically underserved student populations and has the potential to extend successful school day tutoring programs into summer tutoring and extended-day tutoring infrastructure. This ambitious program commits to closing and narrowing the math achievement and opportunity gaps, improving middle school math and Algebra proficiency, and ensuring sustainable, inclusive educational practices through robust tutor recruitment, training, and deployment.
