OUR Arkansas Tutoring Corp Informational Meeting



The Arkansas Department of Education and the Office of Education Renewal Zones announce the launch of the Arkansas Tutoring Corps to serve the academic needs of students across the state. Qualified applicants in the Arkansas Tutoring Corps include students in educator prep programs in institutions of higher education, retired educators, educators currently serving in the classroom, and community members. Tutoring applicants will be required to pass child maltreatment and background checks and will have completed several hours of training in literacy, math, building positive relationships with students and families, classroom/behavior management, and meeting the social and emotional needs of learners.

Our system will connect the bank of prepared candidates with schools and organizations seeking to utilize their acquired training skills to support the academic needs of the students they serve. Qualified tutors may also proactively offer their services to schools and organizations as needed to log the required number of tutoring hours per training module.

Qualified tutors are eligible to receive stipends totaling up to $3,000 in their first year, and $2,500 in subsequent years. To receive the full stipend, tutors must successfully complete the required instructional training and provide documentation that they have served the designated number of tutoring hours per module.

This will be the last training before the start of the new year. For more information please visit https://dese.ade.arkansas.gov/Offices/special-projects/arkansas-tutoring-corps or reach out to Lindsey Swagerty at lmswager@uark.edu.
