Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
Reading Partners respectfully requests a total of 85 MSYs to provide one-to-one tutoring at a total of 60 high needs elementary schools across California. Each year, RP expands to new sites while maintaining quality, and demand for our program is increasing; there are over 70 California schools on our wait list. These members will recruit and manage 3,200 volunteers to provide 1:1 literacy tutoring to 2,900 K-5 students, and 65% of high-need target students receiving at least 16 hours of tutoring will increase their literacy skills by at least one grade level. This project fits the CNCS National Performance Measure for education. The CNCS investment of $1,130,500 will be matched with $3,340,405.
