Tutoring provides students access to critical support and resources
One important way we maximize the impact of our work is by collaborating with other nonprofits to amplify our work.
We first partnered with the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation in 2021 to facilitate a $30,000 investment in targeted in-school and after school catch up tutoring for students at Alicia Sanchez Elementary School and Escuela Bilingüe Pioneer Elementary. Since then, they continue to support Impact on Education and BVSD students by funding tutoring across all grade levels.
Our strategic partnership
The Arly Kruse Educational Foundation aims to enhance the education of children from diverse backgrounds through academic support and tutoring free of cost to Boulder Valley School District families. The Foundation’s namesake was a lifelong educator with a belief in the power of tutoring.
As the Foundation for Boulder Valley’s public schools, Impact on Education is uniquely positioned to help identify schools and students with tutoring needs. Our partnership allows the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation to bring their resources to the students who need them most.
During the 2022-23 school year, the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation funded nine Academic Opportunity Fund grant requests, providing over $23,000 in tutoring.
The value of tutoring
Tutoring is a great way to offer students additional learning opportunities, reinforce classroom learning and build confidence. It also helps educators and schools address learning differences and abilities, providing interventions and opportunities for the students who need them.

By funding Academic Opportunity Fund grants the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation provided:
- Academic tutoring to 100 Boulder High School students through the Adelante! program with additional support for college and career readiness needs
- After school tutoring for students at Centennial Middle School who needed to maintain academic eligibility for soccer
- Intervention for two students with dyslexia at Gold Hill Elementary, one of whom was years behind academically
- After school math Intervention for 4th grade English Language Learners (ELL) students at Louisville Elementary School
- Advanced math tutoring for students at Douglass Elementary School
Continued support during the 2023-24 school year
Funding tutoring across all grade levels enhances the education of many BVSD students. Providing this academic tutoring free of cost ensures students, regardless of their background or circumstances, have access to the same support and resources as their peers.
For the coming school year, our Academic Opportunity Fund and partnership with the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation will continue to help students access the resources they need to succeed.
