Executive Summary

Barren County School Board proposes to have 80 AmeriCorps members who will tutor targeted remedial students in Kindergarten through 12th grade in reading and/or math using research based curriculums. Members will serve in the following county school districts in Kentucky: Barren, Calloway, Carlisle, Crittenden, Fulton, Garrard, Graves, Livingston, Marshall, Metcalfe, Pulaski, and Webster, and in the following independent school districts: Caverna, Glasgow, Mayfield, Owensboro, and Somerset. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members placed in elementary schools will be responsible for targeted students to be reading at or above grade level by the end of the academic year. At the end of the first program year members placed in middle and high schools will be responsible for targeted students to be performing at grade level or above in the tutored subjects. In addition, members at the high schools will be responsible for targeted students graduating on time, and/or being prepared for college or the workforce. ATEAM members will leverage an additional 400 volunteers who will be engaged in assisting students in tutoring and support of school based and program service projects. This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $498,811 will be matched with $673,572 in local cash match and in-kind donations.
