Peer tutor guide for districts and schools now available


Many districts and schools offer a variety of opportunities, including tutoring programs, to help accelerate learning for students. Some schools have expressed interest in developing peer tutoring programs. The information below highlights some ways students participating in local peer tutoring programs could earn seals to meet graduation requirements. Depending on program design and local requirements, students participating in local peer tutoring programs may be able to earn the local Community Service Seal, local Student Engagement Seal or OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal.

The Department has developed a guidebook to support districts and schools in aligning tutoring experiences for high school students to meet components of Ohio’s graduation requirements. The Using Student Peer Tutoring Experiences to Earn Graduation Seals is available now.

Direct questions on students use these seals to meet their graduation requirements to gradrequirements@education.ohio.gov. Send questions about setting up tutoring programs to tutoring@education.ohio.gov.
