High Impact Tutoring Program at Churchill
District 41 and the Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center Partner to Provide a Higher Level of Tutoring for Students
A new high-impact tutoring program in partnership with the Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center (GECRC) will be offered at Churchill School. The goal of the program is to work towards closing the achievement gap in the district. This program will support students who show the greatest achievement gaps in learning due to lack of resources and opportunities. Students who attend GECRC are eligible for this specialized academic program; targeting those with high academic support needs.
Tutors must be over 18 years old and complete training through GECRC and D41. This is separate from the current GECRC volunteers. High-impact tutoring in this program will include:
Small group tutoring (2-4 students in a group) by the same tutor three days per week
Grades 1-3: 30 minutes
Grades 4-5: 45 minutes
Sustained and strong relationships between students and their tutors
Close monitoring of student knowledge and skills
Alignment with District 41 curriculum- literacy focused
Oversight of tutors to assure quality interactions

Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center (GECRC) offers out-of-school programming that empowers under-resourced K-12 students to meet state and local standards for academic and social-emotional learning; involves students in activities that enrich learning; and connects families to schools and other resources necessary to support student success and well-being. GECRC programs make space where students, their parents, educators, and community members can develop mutually enriching relationships that support and inspire learning and growth.
