COACH

The Jump-Start Program targets at-risk English Language Learners (ELL)—students whose first language is not English and whose parents were willing to provide transportation to our tutoring sessions. These students have received intensive support from teachers both for two weeks during the summer and in an after-school program during the school year, totaling seventy-two hours of support to spur and accelerate their growth as readers. The program is being piloted at two Fairfax County elementary schools: Hutchison Elementary and Herndon Elementary. In each school, our process has been to recruit a coordinator and five teachers and to identify ten at-risk ELL students.
