About Blueprint Schools Network ("Blueprint")
Founded in 2010, Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit
organization that promotes educational equity and improves life
outcomes for students by partnering with states, districts, and
schools to plan, implement, and monitor school improvement
initiatives. Blueprint's whole-school improvement approach to
rapidly improving student achievement at low-performing public
schools is grounded in a framework of five core strategies. These
strategies emerged through analyses of the attributes that drive
student achievement and represent common elements of schools
capable of closing the achievement gap in the lowest performing
One of the strategies that consistently demonstrated the most
significant gains in student achievement is providing data-driven,
small-group, differentiated instruction. In 2010, we launched our
small group differentiated instruction strategy "the Blueprint Math
Fellows Program" as a standalone intervention service. Since that
time, our Math Fellows have served more than 25,000 students in
grades 2-11 at more than 100 schools across the country. District
partnerships include the Oakland Unified School District, San
Francisco Unified School District, Pittsburg Unified School
District (CA), Boston Public Schools, Holyoke Public Schools, Salem
Public Schools (MA), Denver Public Schools, Adams County 14 Public
Schools (CO), East Saint Louis School District 189 (IL), Saint
Louis Public Schools (MO) and YES Prep Public Charter Schools
Blueprint Math Fellows are full or part-time tutors charged with
providing students with highly personalized tutoring in mathematics
as part of their regular school day and/or after school. Fellows
work with small groups of students, delivering individualized
lessons and working closely with teachers to accelerate students'
academic achievement. Fellows also work to build strong
relationships with students to help increase their self-confidence
and commitment to education. The Blueprint Fellows program is an
opportunity to participate in a year of service making a difference
in the lives of students. Fellows receive a fellowship stipend as
well as benefits.
While teachers have classrooms of 25 or 30 students, Fellows manage
no more than 6 students at a time. This allows for the
individualization of remedial and supplemental instruction in a
safe space, where students are encouraged to engage with one
another and explain their thinking. Fellows individualize lessons
to meet the needs, interests, and passions of their students and
deliver data-driven instruction that not only significantly impacts
student achievement, but inspires students to be lifelong learners.
By using math as the vehicle, Fellows foster critical thinkers,
confident communicators, and engaged citizens who question,
reflect, self-assess, visualize, respond positively to feedback,
persevere, and internalize goal setting as a tool for continuous
self-improvement. Fellows receive curriculum materials, pre-service
training, on-going mentoring and professional development as well
as written evaluation of feedback from their assigned Site Manager.
Fellows are charged with focusing on the individual needs of their
students, helping to accelerate student achievement and close any
skill gaps that may exist.
