Increasing School Capacity to Meet Students’ Needs 

Findings from the 2022-23 National Partnership for Student Success Principal Survey

A comprehensive post-pandemic representative survey of public school principals fielded by the RAND Corporation in spring 2023 shows that the nation’s schools are working hard to provide students with the people-powered supports they need to thrive in the wake of the pandemic.

A September 2023 report from the Johns Hopkins Everyone Graduates Center estimates that an additional 187,000 adults provided high-intensity tutoring, mentoring, college/career advising, or wraparound supports in public schools during the 2022-23 school year, when compared to the 2021-22 school year. This represents significant progress toward the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of recruiting an additional 250,000 into high-impact student support roles by summer 2025.

Examples of programs and states answering the President's call to action.
