High-Quality Tutoring Programs

Ohio House Bill 583 (134th GA) requires the development of a list of tutoring programs that the Department considers to be of high-quality and have the potential to accelerate learning for students in the areas of English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.  

Evaluation Process

The programs on the resulting list have been determined by the Ohio Department of Education to be of high-quality and have the potential to accelerate learning for students in the areas of English language arts, mathematics, science and/or social studies.

All vendors listed in this directory indicated that they provide a comprehensive tutoring program that includes the six “Key Components of High-Quality Tutoring,” including:

  • Use of high-quality instructional materials;
  • Instruction aligned with research on effective teaching and learning;
  • Integration of high-dosage tutoring practices;
  • Use of data-driven instruction;
  • Hiring quality tutors; and
  • Demonstrated effectiveness.

The Department utilized a scoring rubric to evaluate all applications. All complete and timely submissions were evaluated by three qualified reviewers selected by the Department. Upon review of all applications and reviewer scores, applications receiving a score of 75% advanced to the High-Quality Tutoring Programs list. Applications scoring less than 75% did not advance, although applicants may apply again in subsequent application windows.

No school district or school shall be required to use a tutoring program on the list.   
While this list of high-quality programs is intended to be a helpful resource, schools and districts are best equipped to know the specific needs of students and select appropriate tutoring programs and may select any tutoring provider of their choice, including providers not on the list.

Note: Neither the State of Ohio nor the Ohio Department of Education endorses or recommends textbooks, publishers or programs. Because the Department does not have jurisdiction over determining what type of tutoring programs are used in the classroom or what fees are assessed by districts, parents should contact their local boards of education to raise any concerns they may have regarding the use of tutoring programs. Districts should work with parents in addressing their concerns and take such concerns into consideration.
