Accelerate launched in the context of the national achievement gaps that have worsened significantly over the last two years.
We believe the country has a moral obligation to address these gaps.
Tools and models exist — and more can be developed — to provide all students with individualized instruction that can change the trajectory of their lives.Subscribe
Accelerate actively builds the country’s knowledge of tools and practices that significantly advance student learning.
We do this by bridging the gaps between research, communities, and systems to ensure the rapid and widespread adoption of proven strategies.Subscribe
What We Do
Call to Effective Action
In January 2023, Accelerate launched its second Call to Effective Action to support innovative, scalable tutoring models.
We are proud to have awarded grants to 32 organizations. These organizations will provide tutoring to students during the school day in SY 2023-2024 and engage in research to study their impact.
Since 2022, we have invested over $16M in innovative efforts to improve student outcomes by meeting students where they are.
Our grantees are developing programs to individualize instruction, pairing students with tutors in-person and virtually, and tackling the real challenges of implementation at scale.
This year, our grantees will serve over 300,000 students across the country, from California to Kentucky to New York.
“Accelerate is a rallying cry to schools, districts, states, and others.
We must seize this moment to use federal relief funds to help students, including those most impacted by the pandemic, to close gaps in opportunity and achievement that grew even wider over the last two years.”
U.S. Secretary of Education
