Did you know?

In July, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed off on a record public education budget that included $150 million for individualized tutoring and academic support to help the state’s struggling students recover from pandemic learning loss.

The MI Kids Back on Track grant will support your district and assist you to address unfinished learning, get students to grade-level academic standards, and provide academic assistance to students at risk of falling behind their peers.

We are excited to announce that Stride Tutoring’s high-dosage tutoring aligns with the legislative requirements and is an accepted vendor on the High Impact Tutoring Programs list for this state grant. Let us be your trusted advisors in navigating MI Kids Back on Track with success.
