  12. OUR QUEST To find a way to make LEARNING the CONSTANT and TIME the VARIABLE.

  13. So we asked ourselves: How do we provide more learning opportunities, not to punish kids because they didn’t learn it as fast as some of their peers, but to provide them with an education without holes in it? How do we motivate kids to try and to want to succeed the first time so they don’t just fail due to their own apathy? How do we provide opportunities for our best students to continue to grow academically?

  14. Traditional Summer School • Held in early June • Majority of kids hate it • Sick of school, they just got out • Identifies them, only poor students attend • It feels like a punishment • Still have a month off for regression Our Solution: JUMP START

  15. JUMP START Jane Dodes JumpStart Enrichment Program1.pptx

  16. Class of 2019, currently in 3rd grade. Given the NWEA-MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessment in the spring of 09 at the end of 2nd grade and again at the beginning of 3rd grade. Disaggregated by Jump Start attendance. JUMP START RESULTS

  17. JUMP START RESULTS • In Reading, JS attendees scored an average of .36 pts higher, while non-attendees regressed 1.47 points. • In Language Arts, JS attendees scored an average of .79 points higher, while non-attendees regressed 1.89 points. • In Math, JS attendees scored an average of .57 points higher, while non-attendees scored .95 points higher. ???? We noted a need to change our format.

  18. JUMP START FINANCE We utilized General Fund Poverty Money for our program; however Title Funds would be another possible partial funding source.

  22. ASP FINANCE • The cost of this program had previously been paid for through community grant funding; this is the first year the program has been funded through the district. • We estimate the program expense for staff, food, and supplies at $12,500. • Student fees should cover nearly the entire cost of the program. • $2,500 was budgeted in the poverty account of the general fund.

  23. Summer Camps(on the horizon) • Week-long learning camps in: • Reading • Math • Science • Six-week stretch learning clusters • 2 days per week for 6 weeks • Book study groups • Weekly book studies

  24. Summer Camp Finance Poverty Funds, could use some Title or HAL

  25. Board Perspective • Quality • Quality Indicators • Learning Styles • Retention of knowledge • Business/Community Partnership

  26. QUESTIONS?

  27. CONCLUSION • Kids are not all the same • All kids can learn, but they probably won’t learn it on the same day • Not all homes are created equal • Some kids need more learning opportunities just to keep up • Some kids want more learning opportunities to excel • Most kids will regress, given an opportunity • If it’s truly important, you can find the money • You just have to decide what your local priorities are
