High Dosage Tutoring

In-person tutors during the school day, 30 minutes a day, three days a week.

Intro

Studyville is an LDOE-approved provider for Louisaina’s High Dosage Tutoring program, which benefits public school grades K - 5 in literacy and math, with high dosages of intense tutoring during the school day, three days a week. 

Why Studyville?

Studyville will make district participation easy by providing all program oversight through our district managers, training our high-quality tutors in the Science of Reading and Accelerate math, collecting data, offering regular assessments, communicating with families and teachers, and providing on-site support for school administrators.  At the end of the tutoring program, Studyville will provide detailed narrative reports and data analytics on the students tutored by both the schools and the Department of Education.  Studyville will also help districts assemble their workbook for LDOE approval by September 15.    

Studyville offers in-person tutoring in all districts.  We strongly believe in face-to-face interactions and providing a human connection with which a computer screen cannot compete.

About the Program

High Dosage Tutoring (HDT) is a research-based instructional model that explicitly addresses students’ unfinished learning from core instruction and leverages extra time to prepare students for grade-level content in math and reading. Act 771 of the 2024 Louisiana Legislative Session requires school day embedded tutoring for certain Kindergarten through 5th-grade students. This document serves as a resource for the student eligibility, tutoring requirements, family reporting, scheduling, school system plan submission and reporting, and funding guidance all in alignment with Act 771.
