Executive Summary

The Blueprint Fellows Program (BPFP) will enlist AmeriCorps members to serve as full-time tutors (Fellows) in historically low-performing public schools in Denver, CO and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. BPFP is operated by the Blueprint Schools Network (Blueprint), a nonprofit organization that partners with public school districts to turnaround their lowest-performing schools. Fellows are placed in chronically underperforming schools, most of which are undergoing some form of School Improvement Grant (SIG) turnaround. Fifty (50) AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional fifty (50) volunteers to support the work of accelerating student achievement in mathematics and improving school culture. At the end of the 3-year grant period beginning August 1, 2013, and ending July 31, 2016, Blueprint anticipates an average improvement of greater than one year's growth in achievement in mathematics for participating students each year. This initiative will address the CNCS focus area of Education. Blueprint seeks an investment of $349,598 annually as a cost-reimbursement grant from CNCS that will enable Blueprint to 1) recruit service-oriented talent to participate in BPFP, 2) provide high quality professional development to Fellows, and 3) expand BPFP to serve new communities in Massachusetts.
