Decision 6-TCLAS

If your LEA is a TCLAS Decision 6 recipient, you received licenses for the use of the Subsidized Providers (Amplify, BookNook, and/or Zearn) and up to $400,000.


Two requirements of Decision 6:

  • Your LEA MUST use at least one of the Subsidized Providers, AND
  • The $400,000 can be used to support tutoring costs including tutor pay, tutoring supplies, tutoring resources, tutoring training, and data collection/analysis.
