Tutoring Support for Students
Funded by the Province of Ontario

The Ministry of Education has allocated funding to school boards to provide tutoring for students who experienced learning loss as a result of the pandemic. The allocation of tutoring is determined by the school and is based on assessment data and tutor availability.

Rainbow District School Board has adopted two tutoring models – targeted tutoring with a focus on literacy instruction in small groups using a guided-reading style model, supplemented with explicit phonics instruction; and drop-in tutoring with a focus on support for classwork and homework assignments. Programs began last spring and continue this fall.

Tutors have been trained by the Board’s central program staff to ensure consistency and effectiveness. A common framework for instruction, documentation and monitoring is being used. Tutors also have access to a central bank of resources.
