First NC district selects Paper to "bridge opportunity & achievement gaps"
Harnett County Schools has partnered with Paper to provide unlimited, 24/7 tutoring to all 1,000 students at Highland Middle School—at no cost to families.
“As Superintendent, one of my top priorities is to ensure every student receives a world-class education,” said Dr. Aaron Fleming. “Harnett County Schools is honored to be the first PSU (public school unit) in North Carolina to welcome Paper. We look forward to reviewing the positive impact this platform will have on student achievement.”
Whether students are stuck on homework, studying for a test, or need someone to make suggestions for their essays, experts are available day and night to assist them in any subject via a secure, chat-based platform, both inside and outside of the classroom.
“The success of Paper in other school districts has been inspiring and we hope to have similar outcomes here in Harnett County Schools,” said Jermaine White, Assistant Superintendent. “The availability of 24/7 tutoring for students will help bridge opportunity and achievement gaps as we continuously work to ensure success for all students.”
With full visibility into student activity, teachers can track progress, identify learning gaps and personalize their instruction without feeling pressure to be on call 24/7 for their students. With tutors providing an extra set of eyes on every first draft, teachers also receive higher-quality submissions that cut down their grading time.
“We are so excited to start implementing Paper here at Highland Middle School,” said Britton Sullivan, Highland Middle School Principal. “The fact that students and families can access help with their academics on any day at any time will be an amazing resource for our school community.”
