Cabell Schools Becomes First West Virginia District to Provide Unlimited, 24/7 Academic Support with Paper

Cabell County Schools today announced its first-in-state partnership with Paper™, a provider of unlimited, 24/7 academic support.

3,578 Cabell students in grades six through nine are gaining access to the vital academic support provided by Paper as they enter a new school year—at no cost to students and families. 

“By partnering with Paper, we’re offering students and their families free, around-the-clock learning assistance from the comfort of home,” said Dr. Ryan S. Saxe, Superintendent of Schools, Cabell County Schools. 

“The easy-to-navigate online platform utilizes skilled tutors trained not to simply provide answers, but instead to guide students toward finding their own solutions. Paper offers an additional impactful layer of academic support I am hopeful will make a tremendous difference in our students’ learning experiences and overall achievement.”

Paper's tutors and educational instructors deliver on-demand, personalized support that complements what students are learning in their classrooms, all while keeping teachers in the loop. 

“Our district’s educators may monitor their students’ interactions with Paper so they can quickly identify and address concepts the children might be struggling to master,” added Dr. Saxe.

Paper supports parents and caregivers by helping them avoid the cost, time, and stress of relearning trigonometry and Shakespeare or hiring private tutors to help their child with classwork, which many families simply cannot afford.

“A parent might not have a full understanding of advanced math concepts taught in an algebra or calculus course,” said Kelly Watts, Deputy Superintendent for the Division of Instruction and Leadership Services, Cabell County Schools. 

“Now, instead of becoming frustrated, or worse, giving up altogether, a student and their parent can simply log in to Paper together and ask a tutor for assistance. By doing so, the parent is still showing support for their student’s learning while actively taking a step toward eliminating obstacles to completing assignments. It is truly empowering for parents.”

Cabell students and parents may access Paper through the Clever portal or by following the link to “Paper Online Tutors” found under the “Families” heading of the district’s website, www.cabellschools.com, or under the “Families” heading of each school’s website.
