Blueprint Schools Network (Blueprint)
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. Blueprints 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 (TX).
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
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
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
