When considering instructional supports through an equity lens, the PUSD leadership were driven to bring Paper into their schools.
Helen Hill, Director of Curriculum, Instruction & Professional Development at Pasadena USD, said, “We said this would be a time like no other, where you can talk about individualized attention, where we can help stretch the bandwidth of our teachers and help them reach their hundred and fifty plus students.”
“This isn’t because we feel sorry for certain children, or we don’t think certain children can do this or that, it’s that every child has a learning progression and we need to be able to meet them where they are.”
“And if I don’t have the time because of the complexity of my content and the number of kids I have on my roster, then I want somebody else who is well-trained to help them too, at the time that they need it. So that’s really what we were drawn to, with Paper.”
With Paper, districts grant unlimited tutoring access and essay review to all of their students for a fixed cost. Last year, Paper provided more 1-1 tutoring sessions to California students than any other state.
At Paper, we are committed to helping district leaders effectively transition into fall schooling while meeting the growing needs of their students and teachers.
The 2020-2021 school year will be different. With Paper, your district can increase instructional time while reducing your teachers’ workload, all at a fixed cost. Learn more.
Founded in 2014, Paper is an Educational Support System (ESS) providing students with 24/7 live help & essay review, and teachers with real-time feedback and intervention tools. Paper partners with districts across North America to close the achievement gap and support educational equity.
