    General Information

    A note from Paper about safety:

    Each Paper tutor is a dedicated employee, not a freelance worker or subcontractor, who has undergone a criminal background check prior to employment. Tutors are extensively trained to provide a safe, non-judgmental learning environment, promote good digital citizenship, and enact crisis prevention and response processes established in collaboration with schools.

    Paper integrates with schools’ existing security and privacy practices. Paper operates under strict adherence to federal and state-specific student data privacy laws such as COPPA, FERPA, CSDPA, and IL-NDPA. Paper is also a signatory of the Student Privacy Pledge and a member of the A4L Community and SDPC. All tutor-student communication is chat-based to provide 100% visibility into all student activity to school leaders, teachers, and parents or guardians.
