TN ALL Corps

To address gaps and accelerate student learning across the state of Tennessee, the department is launching the TN Accelerating Literacy and Learning Corps (TN ALL Corps), a grant opportunity to empower school districts across the state to implement or strengthen robust tutoring programs for students.

Through TN ALL Corps grants, districts can flexibly design their local tutoring supports within the grant framework to meet the tenets of high dosage/low ratio tutoring that drives strong outcomes for students. Districts have significant flexibility in determining the structure of tutoring, as well as when to launch TN ALL Corps programming in the district.

To assist districts with this work, the department is creating a tutor partner guide for districts that may choose to work with a third-party provider to deliver some or all of its tutoring services through TN ALL Corps. Districts are not required to partner with third-party providers, nor are they required to use a partner from the guide we create. However, this guide is intended to serve as a resource for districts interested in working with a tutor partner. Vendor vetting and qualification, purchasing and invoicing, including final determination of costs, will occur between the district and any tutor partner they select to work with, subject to districts’ local purchasing policies. The department is offering all interested vendors an opportunity to be listed as a potential tutor partner in this guide by agreeing to the minimum requirements outlined in the submission link, and submitting program information here by September 15, 2021 at 5:00pm CT.
