K-5 Literacy Tutoring Offered

The Louisiana Department of Education is launching a new literacy tutoring program for kindergarten through 5th grade students. The Steve Carter Literacy Tutoring Program, part of the Louisiana Tutoring Initiative, provides $1,000 digital vouchers to eligible students for literacy tutoring.

Tutors are approved by the Louisiana Department of Education and have expertise in reading and literacy. Tutoring can be in-person or virtual. Applying for the digital voucher and tutoring services is easy and will take less than 5 minutes.

Once the application opens, you will be required to:

● Enter your email address to receive a temporary pin.

If eligible for the program, students will receive a message on the website in real-time noting their eligibility. Once eligibility is approved and verified by the school, students can access available funds online, which can be used only through the platform to schedule tutoring.
