ReNEW-Reinventing Education (ReNEW Schools)
School Turnaround AmeriCorps State Competitive Direct FY 2013
Achieving College Readiness through Turnaround Support will place 24 AmeriCorps members in six low-performing, high-minority, high-poverty Louisiana priority schools in New Orleans. Leveraging 100 additional volunteers, Corps members will help ReNEW's educators provide academic supports to 2048 at-risk PK-12 students and support the development of strong school climate and culture. By the end of each school year, the program will enable increased academic gains (1.3 years of growth) in literacy and math, higher attendance, and improved student behavior. CNCS' investment of $319,200 will be matched with $752,631.
