Accelerate is designed to support school systems implementing tutoring at scale as a core function in order to achieve significant results for all students.
To effectively address and prevent unfinished learning, students must be provided with extra time to learn through equal-access tutoring. Accelerate is a just-in-time tutoring model that is focused on identifying, celebrating and building upon the assets students bring to the learning experience. An acceleration approach addresses unfinished learning in an equitable way. Acceleration means connecting unfinished learning in the context of new learning, integrating new information and the needed prior knowledge.
