Executive Summary


Of the 73 part-time Arkansas Smart Start AmeriCorps Program members 80% are current college students. Members gain experience in the education field by serving kindergarten-5th grade students in the rural Arkansas Delta Elementary School classrooms providing services over the 10 month school year. Each member provides 10-15 students at increased risk for academic failure with one-on-one reading and math tutoring for no less than one hour/wk and English as a Second Language students receive at least two hours of tutoring each week. Those students targeted with one-on-one tutoring will demonstrate significant improvement in math and language arts proficiency on standardized testing conducted pre and post AmeriCorps interventions. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $458,680.00 will be matched with no less than $216,147.00.
