When you partner with UTSS, together we will

  • disrupt systemic barriers to educational equity for all K-12 students in the district
  • prepare a pipeline of teachers who come from the communities they serve
  • make success in school – and ultimately, life – a possibility for every SPS student.


UTSS is committed to providing equitable access to tutor support for all students. The immense impacts of COVID-19 school closures make ensuring student needs are identified and supported more important than ever. 

Your donation will directly impact student learning.

UTSS has been a valued school partner for the past 10 years, coming alongside teachers and students in classrooms to support students furthest from educational justice.
When schools closed in March 2020, UTSS was one of the first organizations to support on-line learning and outreach to students and families alongside school staff.
Both the emotional and academic needs of students will need much support in the years to come. 
UTSS is proud to continue our partnership work with schools and other community organizations to maintain educational equity by providing free academic tutoring to students.

Our 2021-22 funding priorities

A gift to UTSS always is a commitment to close the equity gap for students of color

Remote learning has impacted every student but many students will be challenged by unprecedented learning loss, and the rapid, inevitable widening of the education equity gap. UTSS’ existing partnerships with schools, coupled with our flexible program model and talented tutors, make us uniquely positioned to step into what is now an urgent mitigation role.

School leaders are faced with the difficult task to choose from many important student interventions while constrained by limited budget dollars.  UTSS will provide academic support with every dollar raised for those most in need.
