EVTA tutors are ready to help in the summer of 2022 to assist children with distance/hybrid learning tasks. A team of trained tutors is working at five schools in Taos and Rio Arriba Counties. EVTA welcomes referrals from families as well.
Excerpted from a report, "Education in a Pandemic: The Disparate Impacts of COVID-19 on America’s Students" (6/21), by the office of civil rights of the US Department of Education. It spells out the need experienced by students in New Mexico (and our nation) for both tutoring and mentoring services:
OBSERVATION 2 (K-12): COVID-19 appears to have deepened the impact of disparities in access and opportunity facing many students of color in public schools, including technological and other barriers that make it harder to stay engaged in virtual classrooms.
OBSERVATION 3 (K-12): Even before the pandemic, many students learning English struggled to participate on equal terms in the classroom as they confronted the dual challenge of mastering grade-level content while continuing to learn English. For many English learners, the abrupt shift to learning from home amid the challenges of the pandemic has made that struggle even harder.
OBSERVATION 4 (K-12): For many elementary and secondary school students with disabilities, COVID-19 has significantly disrupted the education and related aids and services needed to support their academic progress and prevent regression. And there are signs that those disruptions may be exacerbating longstanding disability-based disparities in academic achievement.
OBSERVATION 6 (K-12 and postsecondary): Nearly all students have experienced some challenges to their mental health and well-being during the pandemic and many have lost access to school-based services and supports, with early research showing disparities based on race, ethnicity, LGBTQ+ identity, and other factors.
