The extra funding and emphasis on tutoring at these campuses are part of the Dallas Independent Imagine 2020 program, setting new goals for in-school tutoring, before-or-after-school extended optional tutoring for students, and mentors for high needs students. Other support professionals include social workers, college and career readiness coordinators, student advocate coordinators, urban specialists and school psychologists.
