In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Susanville Indian Rancheria's Education Program will shape their tutoring program by providing laptops to more than 100 students for distance education. The project also will provide coordination between tutors, students, parents, and teachers for more effective student participation and achievement. Many K-12 students lack devices to attend school online and complete distance education. An achievement gap exists between Native students and their peers; data suggests that the Native students in their program fell even further behind when their schools closed due to COVID-19. By providing laptops for these students and training for staff, students, and parents to use platforms such as Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom, they will continue to close the achievement gap.
