The UServeUtah AmeriCorps Math Tutoring program will place AmeriCorps members in elementary schools to tutor students who have been identified in the Granite School district as not at or proficient in math, depending on grade. Per AmeriCorps member, students will be identified for the pull-out model through a screening assessment that will provide data for each student on the key concept gaps that must be addressed to develop grade level proficiency. Granite School District is working hard to improve math proficiency and that is where we need your help!
