In addition to providing free academic support to Fulton County library card holders, Paper.co will also be available for CLASS PASS participants from Atlanta Public Schools, who currently use student identification credentials to access many of the library’s resources.
With many districts continuing to teach children with remote learning, the need for flexible and personalized online support for students has only increased. In partnering with Paper, the Fulton County Library System is helping close the divide between those who can afford private tutoring and those who cannot.
“The Fulton County Library System is very excited to begin offering Paper to library patrons. This new online tutoring resource will allow the Library System to support students, families, and teachers as they continue navigating this virtual world of homeschooling and virtual learning during COVID-19, with the resources and support they need from their public library. We look forward to seeing the impact on student success as Paper begins providing services to our library cardholders,” said Gayle Holloman, Executive Director of the Fulton County Library System.
Teachers in Paper’s partner organizations have reported seeing an increase in students' grades since using Paper, and many students have reported feeling more confident with their school work.
