Throughout the pandemic, there have been concerns that kids could be deeply impacted by all of the changes in their mental health, social lives, and education. It does appear some kids have fallen behind in school. 

A pandemic-inspired partnership between Duluth Public Schools and the College of St. Scholastica to offer free tutoring for K-12 students is still seeing demand. 

About a year ago, the tutoring service was launched using COVID relief dollars and federal work-study funds to pay CSS students to help Duluth students catch up if they fall behind.
