In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Education Minister Stephen Lecce has developed Ontario’s Learning Recovery Action Plan to help students caught in the midst of the global disruption. This comprehensive plan is designed to support struggling students and address the unique challenges that they may face. It includes a variety of interventions, such as reading and math tutoring support and targeted initiatives for mental health and well-being. By investing in these types of initiatives, Ontario is working to bridge learning gaps and improve academic achievement for all students across the province. Overall, this plan marks an important step forward in ensuring that students are able to thrive both academically and mentally during this time of change and uncertainty.
Making An Investment
As part of the Ontario government’s Learning Recovery Action Plan, a significant investment of over $176 million has been made in tutoring services to help students recover from the impact of educational gaps caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. These investments will provide opportunities for small group tutoring services offered outside of school hours, on weekends, over the summer, and at other times and locations that are culturally and community appropriate.
These tutoring services will focus on helping students improve their reading and math skills, which are fundamental building blocks for academic success. By investing in these essential learning supports, the Ontario government is demonstrating its commitment to providing all students with equal opportunities to achieve their full potential. Whether during this difficult period or as we move forward into a new academic year, we must do everything we can to ensure that our students receive the support they need to thrive. And with this investment in tutoring services, Ontario is well on its way to achieving this goal.
