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.
In August 2016, Blueprint launched a partnership with Oakland Unified School District to implement the Blueprint Math Fellows Program. In the current academic year, the program has 18 full-time Math Fellows serving more than 450 students in seven middle schools. The Math Fellows are an integral part of the school experience, helping build a culture of high expectations for the students they serve. In addition to Oakland (CA), Blueprint is currently implementing the Math Fellows Program in East St Louis School District 189 (IL).
Based on the Blueprint School Network’s mission to promote educational equity to improve the life outcomes of students, the Blueprint Math Fellows Program vision of the future is one in which all students are on track to graduate from high school and are fully prepared for success in postsecondary options. The Math Fellows Program Assistant plays a critical role in supporting Site and Regional Managers in a district to ensure Math Fellows maintain high expectations while meeting the needs of their students. The Program Assistants also play an integral role in building a positive school culture that embraces the diversity of our students and communities.
