Why 5 New York School Districts Are Providing Students With 24/7 Tutoring

January 14, 2022

Paper is thrilled to welcome five Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES component districts as new partners: Penn Yan Central School District, Sodus Central School District, Manchester-Shortsville Central School District, Marion Central School District, and Red Creek Central School District.

Our partners shared their excitement regarding the partnership for a variety of reasons. See some of their thoughts below:

Live Help and Essay Review from qualified tutors

"Our students can access support, in four different languages, from experts on any subject 24/7 using an interactive, chat-based platform. Paper's service provides all students with an opportunity to improve their knowledge, skills, and grades, whether the student is taking grade level or advanced placement courses. For 100% transparency, all student-tutor interactions are recorded and accessible to the students’ parents, teachers, and administrators. This includes viewing the unlimited annotated essay or written work review service Paper provides students."

— Charlene Dehn, Superintendent, Manchester-Shortsville Central School District

Beneficial for students and teachers

“We just began sharing Paper with teachers and students, and many have been quick to begin using this tutoring resource. Students are finding it simple to use, and teachers are finding it helpful for supporting students. The tutors use the Socratic method which engages students in true learning while not simply giving students the answer."

— Heather Uetz, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, Sodus Central School District

"Our dedicated teachers can use this valuable information to further address individual student needs through tailored instruction."

— Charlene Dehn, Superintendent, Manchester-Shortsville Central School District

Supporting anytime, anywhere learning

"We believe that students will find a greater level of success if they have access to instructional support online that supports the high-quality instruction that they receive at school. At Marion CSD, we engage all students to achieve their fullest potential today and to be prepared for tomorrow's opportunities."

— Shane Dehn, Marion Jr./Sr. High School Principal, Marion Central School District

"Students are able to use Paper to get help any time of day, any day of the week. This also will definitely help support our students who may have to be quarantined."

— Heather Uetz, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, Sodus Central School District

Alignment to district's mission

"We are excited to partner with Paper for 24/7 tutoring funded by New York State grants. The opportunity for all of our 6th-12th grade students to access high-quality tutoring in nearly every subject as a complement to our teachers' primary instruction supports our mission of Engaging, Educating, Empowering, and Enriching, Every Student, Every day."

— Greg Baker, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Staff Development, Penn Yan Central School District

"Our partnership with Paper is another exciting new way we place students first at Red Jacket and achieve our mission: We challenge all learners and work in partnership with students, parents, and community to achieve high standards."

— Charlene Dehn, Superintendent, Manchester-Shortsville Central School District
