Children of Promise Preparatory Academy is a public charter school located in Inglewood, California. COPPA serves a high low-income student population (93%), and a majority of students are considered at-risk due to low-income status and low performance on benchmark and state assessments. In January 2018, the school partnered with FEV Tutor to help at-risk students bridge skill-gaps in both Math and ELA.
In 2017, Children of Promise Preparatory Academy performed better than only 0.6% of elementary schools in California. COPPA needed to get students additional supports to keep them on track to fulfill California A-G Requirements and place them on a College and Career Ready path.
FEV Tutor worked with stakeholders at each middle school to create a customized tutoring program. Tutoring was delivered at the middle school level during the school day or in an after-school setting.
MVUSD shared students’ Fall NWEA MAP Growth scores so that the FEV data team could analyze and identify students that would benefit most from live, 1:1 tutoring and to create Personalized Tutoring Plans for individual students. Tutoring Plans were based on RIT Scores, focus areas, and projected growth goals.
FEV Tutor worked with Children of Promise leadership to complete an NWEA MAP Growth Analysis to measure student growth. At the end of the 2017-2018 Academic Year, COPPA had performed better than 4.9% of elementary schools in California as compared to 0.6% the previous year.
