H.I.T Grant Information

  • NJ DOE High Impact Tutoring GrantNJ Department of Education Logo


    MTSD has been awarded the High Impact Tutoring grant from the state, which is a great opportunity for our students. The philosophy of the grant is that current 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students have learning opportunity gaps from the pandemic years, which can be closed through high-impact tutoring.

    (H.I.T. is defined as three times a week, at least 30 minutes, in a ratio of 3:1 or less)

    Why is my child being identified if their report card is showing they are doing well?

    • This program intends to provide your student with an “academic boost” by working through foundational skills that have not yet been mastered. These targeted skills are considered prerequisite to what your students' classroom teacher is working on at their current grade level.
