Serving Title I schools with significant achievement gaps in math and reading is a challenge faced by many districts across the country. Houston Independent School District (HISD) needed a solution that would address these gaps and work towards improving student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). To make this change happen, HISD partnered with Catapult Learning to provide a flexible and targeted tutoring solution for 1487 Title I students in 19 HISD schools serving this largely at-risk student population.
As a contracted provider for HISD, Catapult Learning can help close student achievement gaps for struggling learners. Our effective tutoring programs build confidence, skills, and work habits to help students succeed in the classroom and on test day.
Tutors work with small groups to help students succeed. Content areas include reading, math, writing, High School English, algebra, and geometry.
