Kids who have struggled through COVID-19 distance learning and who are enrolled in summer school in Richmond County are getting some relief. Starting June 1st, students will have access to 24/7 tutoring through a ten-thousand-dollar grant provided by the Georgia Foundation for Public Education. The access is given to help students master material and supplement their virtual summer instruction. It is an effort to mitigate the long-term impact of the pandemic.

“It is exciting to offer online tutoring to support our first virtual summer school students. During the coronavirus related school closures, parents shared their experiences about the challenges of distance learning,” said Malinda Cobb, Associate Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction and Technology. “We identified a resource to assist all of our summer school students and parents and have certified, online tutors available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
