Free State Tutoring Program Web Page Now Active 

The Arizona Department of Education has activated the Achievement Tutoring Program web page so parents of students in grades 3-8 who are not proficient in reading, writing or math can access free tutoring.

State schools chief Tom Horne announced last week that $40 million in federal funding designated to address pandemic-related learning loss is being made available to pay for the tutoring, which will be accessible through participating public school teachers or private vendors beginning October 2.

Students are eligible if they test below proficiency levels in reading, writing or math and are in grades 3-8. Since the federal dollars are specifically designed to address pandemic-related learning loss, children who were not of school age during the pandemic are not eligible.

The website contains frequently asked questions and basic information on how to access tutoring services. Detailed information can be accessed at
