Watch: San Jacinto USD talks about how Paper helped increase passing grades and help at-risk seniors graduate on time
San Jacinto Schools Use 24/7 Tutoring to Increase Graduation Rates
The district sought a solution that offered individualized support accessible at any time, allowed students to get help in their primary language and would support elementary through high school students. To achieve their goals, San Jacinto USD chose Paper’s unlimited 24/7 tutoring platform.
Using a multichannel marketing approach spanning signage, flyers, email, video, social media and outreach through teachers, counselors & parent liaisons, San Jacinto USD successfully drove student adoption of Paper. The district leaned on Paper’s pre-built, multilingual content and templates to get the marketing program launched quickly and effectively.
In just the first few months of usage, 25% of San Jacinto USD students became active users of the system — seeking on-demand tutoring help and submitting writing work for expert feedback. Teachers saw an increase in assignments submitted resulting in better grades. 90% of at-risk seniors graduated on time, with the balance set to graduate over the summer.
