Reading Corps and Math Corps is Expanding Statewide in Georgia

We are excited to announce that Reading Corps and Math Corps will be expanding across the state or Georgia! Currently operating in Dougherty, Fulton, Treutlen, and Clay Counties, a $6 million investment from the Georgia Department of Education will make it possible to bring our high impact tutoring programs to districts and schools across Georgia. 

“We are committed to investing in our state’s academic recovery and addressing lost learning opportunities as a result of the pandemic, by providing direct academic interventions to our students,” said State School Superintendent Richard Woods. “We know it is possible for our students to regain lost ground and will continue to make investments as a state to ensure they do so. I wish to thank the Georgia General Assembly, AmeriCorps, and our Georgia Virtual Learning staff for their partnership in this effort to extend targeted, high-quality tutoring services to students throughout the state.” 

With the incredible support from Georgia Department of Education, an additional 200 tutors will begin serving this year. Together, they will support more than 5,000 students in grades K-8. The added resources couldn’t come at a more critical time. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the Nation’s Report card, reports that fewer than a third of Georgia’s fourth grade students are proficient in reading and 23 percent of eighth graders are demonstrating proficiency with math.  

“The good news is that Reading Corps and Math Corps provide a proven solution to help get students back on track while addressing learning loss in both Math and Reading,” said Shawonna Coleman, Executive Director of Georgia Reading & Math Corps. “To help more students succeed, we need passionate people who are ready to make a difference as tutors.” Interested candidates should apply by December 8th to begin in January 2024.
