Support Local Students in their Battle to Recover from Pandemic Learning Loss

Paving the Road to Recovery

"Covid has taken a big hit on my daughter's learning." - RITES tutoring parent

Without question, the pandemic is making things much harder for students—many have fallen far behind academically.

We need to lead them down the road to recovery from learning loss.

When COVID-19 disrupted schools in spring 2019, educators predicted remote learning would set up many children for failure, especially students of color and those from poor families. Here are just some key findings so far:

  • Test scores from the first months of remote learning showed students falling months behind in reading and math.
  • As many students returned to classrooms for the first time after 18 months of disruptions this fall, some teachers have found the learning loss to be worse than projected.
  • Many fourth-graders returned to school reading on the same level as they had in the second grade, when the pandemic started, leaving them more than two grade levels behind now.
  • According to decades of research, students who aren’t reading at grade level by third grade are more likely to drop out of high school and end up in prison.

You can help these students improve their reading, writing, and math skills RIGHT NOW. In order to catch up, these students need funding to attend after-school support sessions with expert teachers who provide effective, engaging instruction based on scientifically-proven teaching methods.

With your support, these students CAN win the learning loss battle.
