Saturday Schools and Tutoring as Interventions. Research Brief
Walker, Karen
Education Partnerships, Inc.
Being clear about the reason for academic intervention programs is essential prior to establishing programs. Saturday School and tutoring are two approaches that can be helpful in student retention and increasing graduation rates but only if they are set up to meet the specific needs of the school's students. There are no common measures of the success of Saturday School programs but there are many programs that have been successful for several years. Saturday school programs fit three categories--enrichment, credit recovery, and disciplinary. There is strong evidence about the positive impact of tutoring on student academic confidence and high school graduation. But the evidence is clear that no single approach will meet the needs of students who may benefit from tutoring. Further there is evidence that when learning is personalized students are more successful. (Contains 35 online resources.)
