With our continuous focus on optimizing educational experiences, Durham Black Educators’ Network (DBEN) has created Elevate and Expand: Coaching for ExcellenceThis new initiative is our Culturally Relevant and Responsive, virtual tutoring support program, for Durham District School Board students in Grades 6 – 12 who identify as a part of Durham’s Black diaspora.

Strengthening our commitment to enhancing academic equitable outcomes, DBEN has partnered with DDSB’s Student Achievement and Curriculum Department to provide complimentary tutoring support. 

Virtual 1:1 support will be offered through Google Meet.  Our gap closing initiative will provide students with sessions up to 3 hours per week.  Students will be matched with tutors based on academic strengths and needs, and our tutors’ teaching qualifications.

Elementary students’ sessions will run throughout the year and Secondary students’ sessions will be based on quadmesters.

Families are kindly asked to complete the Elevate & Expand: Coaching for Excellence Registration Form, including the media release by October 15th.  Our DBEN Tutoring Coordinator will be in contact to finalize the intake process.
