    About Blueprint Schools Network (“Blueprint”)


    Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit founded in 2010. We are driven by our mission to promote educational equity and improve life outcomes for students. Using strategies proven to close achievement gaps, Blueprint partners with states, districts, and schools to customize and implement either a whole-school improvement strategy or our Math Fellows Program.


    Since our 2010 launch in Denver Public Schools, Blueprint has expanded across the country and partnered with more than 100 schools serving over 20,000 students in East St. Louis (IL); St. Louis (MO); Oakland (CA); Leadville (CO); and in Boston, Holyoke, and Salem (MA).


    About the Blueprint Math Fellows Program


    The Blueprint Math Fellows Program provides intensive, small group math tutoring to students as part of their regular school day. Our tutorial sessions address gaps in foundational mathematics knowledge and promote each student’s ability to problem solve, think critically, and access grade-level coursework. Tutorial groups are small and personalized. Each full-time tutor, known as a “Math Fellow,” works with no more than four students at a time. Tutorial sessions are 45-60 minutes long, highly structured, and research-based. The Math Fellows Program provides each student with an additional opportunity to understand and master math concepts every day of the school year.


    Our Math Fellows are also AmeriCorps members and, through their year of national service, make additional contributions to their school and local communities as club leaders, volunteer service day organizers, and coaches. The Math Fellows Program has also become an innovative teacher pipeline. Approximately one out of every four Fellows becomes a full-time teacher, often in the schools where they served as Fellows.
