Statewide High Impact Tutoring for Designated Improvement Schools. July 10, 2023.
The New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) invites a request for proposals to provide high impact tutoring to be delivered by well-trained instructors to approximately 2,000 students across New Mexico attending PED designated improvement schools. Prioritization of tutoring for At-Risk student groups aims to address unfinished learning as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which disproportionately impacted students in families from lower-income backgrounds. At-risk student groups, as referenced here are those students determined to be economically disadvantaged, Native American, English Learners, and Students with Disabilities. The tutoring must be tied to grade-appropriate standards and classroom content that is effective in addressing learning gaps. Evidence of student achievement gains from targeted and intensive small group interventions is expected as demonstrated by ongoing balanced formative, interim, and summative assessments. https://webnew.ped.state.nm.us/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Log-362-RFP_Final.pdf
