The School District of Philadelphia’s Office of Strategic Partnerships
and the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development
(PHENND) are reaching out to leaders and support staff within higher eds to better understand the landscape of university led-tutoring programs in District schools.
The Office of Strategic Partnerships works to improve the way the District and schools engage with the many external organizations that support schools. A key function of our work includes identifying and aligning partner resources to address needs reported by schools through an annual survey completed by school leaders. Over the past several years, tutoring has consistently been identified as one of the top five critical needs through this survey.
If you are affiliated with tutoring programming offered to District schools, we ask that you take a few moments to complete a survey to enrich our understanding of the existing tutoring resources across Philadelphia schools. Your responses to the School District of Philadelphia Tutoring Landscape Survey will help provide a more comprehensive understanding of the tutoring programs that are operating in our schools, which will allow us to better align university resources with expressed school needs.
We hope you will participate and share this survey with other relevant parties who might have more specific knowledge about any SDP tutoring programs that are run by your higher-education institution.
This data can be used by multiple stakeholders involved in this work to more equitably and efficiently: allocate resources, distribute programs geographically, coordinate program logistics (e.g. scheduling, transportation), address content and grade band gaps in programming, and coordinate volunteer on-boarding and training.
We are confident that understanding the tutoring landscape will assist universities in better leveraging their resources to support our young people and their school communities.
Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey which should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
It is recommended that this survey is completed on a computer. Please respond by December 20.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
