Monarch Academy Annapolis, a public contract school with Anne Arundel County Public Schools, is using $51,135 in federal CARES Act funds to support tutoring for students. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress last year to provide economic relief to Americans.
Monarch Academy Annapolis is partnering with Huntington Learning Center, a tutoring and test prep organization, to provide virtual or in-person one-on-one tutoring for students in kindergarten through fifth grades and small-group tutoring for students in second through fifth grades. Tutoring is helping students who show the most need in reading and math.
“While the pandemic has presented numerous challenges to schools and families, we are thankful for the grant funding that has been provided to support student learning in this time,” said Rachel Amstutz, principal of Monarch Academy Annapolis. “Our partnership with Huntington Learning Center has been such a gift to our school and our identified students. The flexibility of HLC in offering in-person or virtual tutoring at all times of the day and on school days and the weekend has proven to work well for all of our identified students.”
