FEV Success Story - Math Growth at Moreno Valley Unified School District

Posted by Caitlin Powers on Jun 5, 2018 12:00:58 PM
The Challenge:

Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD), a diverse Title I district located in the San Bernardino-Riverside Metropolitan Area of California, historically struggled in Math. With the changing rigor of California Common Core State Standards, students throughout the district were falling further behind. Over three quarters of students district-wide were scoring below proficiency on the California Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assessment. District administrators knew they had to address Math achievement head-on. They would need to think outside of the box 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.

Overview

As a district-approved virtual tutoring provider at Fulton County Schools (FCS), FEV Tutor has partnered with several FCS Elementary and Middle Schools in the Greater Atlanta area to deliver highly-targeted, live, 1-to-1 Math and ELA Tutoring support. Each tutoring program has been planned collaboratively with school leadership and customized based on the needs of individual school sites. Our classroom-connected tutoring services have been delivered during the school day, after-school, and at-home on nights and weekends to help students to bridge skill-gaps, prepare for the Georgia Milestones assessment, support remediation, and as an in-school suspension support service for FCS students. 

In this success story we are profiling the Math student achievement gains attained by 8th grade students at Holcomb Bridge Middle School who participated in an intensive Math skill-building program ahead of the Georgia Milestones Exam. We are pleased to say that after one semester of FEV's tutoring services 70% of participating students went on to exceed their projected gains on the Georgia Milestones Math Assessment.
