Decades of systemic under education of free lunch students has resulted in a culture steeped in hopelessness, limited opportunities for advancement and reinforcement of negative stereotypes leading to generational poverty and criminal behavior. FCAT scores of 6th-8th grade free lunch students clearly shows up to 57% of those students are failing math and or reading and have been for over a decade. Between grades 6-8, 57% represents approximately 6,000 children each year, undereducated and unprepared for success in the 21st century.
1. An extended academic school schedule.
2. The use of data to drive instruction designed to fit each individual student.
3. Devotion to developing high-quality human capital (inclusion life skills development, mentors, treatment programs).
4. Build a culture of high expectations (sounds simple, but the most important component) .
5. Small group team training to manage a structured program (A CCSI innovation)
