1) Summer Program Teaching Fellows Compensation ($24,000) – In the summer of 2016, we will employ four mentor teachers who will supervise our Teaching Fellows. Each Teaching Fellow will receive a stipend of $2,000.
2) After-School Program Transportation ($15,000) – During the 2015-2016 After School Program, Breakthrough provides bus transportation for our students from up to 18 New Haven middle schools. This transportation is necessary because Hopkins School is on the far western end of New Haven and is not easily accessible by bus line (especially for 12- and 13-year old students).
3) Summer Program Instructional Coaches Compensation ($20,000) – In the summer of 2016, we will employ four mentor teachers who will supervise our Teaching Fellows. Each Instructional Coach will receive a stipend of $5,000.
4) After School Program Instructional Coaches Compensation ($12,000) – During the 2015-2016 school year, we will employ four Instructional Coaches who will supervise our Tutors and Teaching Fellows and, in some cases lead instruction in our classrooms. Each Instructional Coach will receive a stipend of $3,000.
5) Improved SSAT Test Preparation – The SSAT, a key component of applications to independent schools, is much more challenging than the state-based CMT tests our students typically sit for. As a result, the SSAT is the one, insurmountable hurdle our students face given they usually have strong grades and recommendations, solid essays, and good interviewing skills. Breakthrough staff members are preparing to rigorously analyze the test, develop lesson plans that incorporate more challenging mathematics and multi-modal pedagogy for language acquisition and vocabulary development. We must improve our students’ performance.
Breakthrough New Haven, an affiliate of the Breakthrough Collaborative, is a tuition-free, year-round program for highly motivated middle school students. The program seeks to prepare the students for challenging, college-preparatory high schools. Once accepted to Breakthrough New Haven, students make a two-year commitment during middle school, which includes a rigorous academic Summer Program, educational enrichment classes in our After-School Program, and comprehensive high school placement guidance.
Summer Program academic classes included English, Math, Science, History Research Workshop and World Languages. For example, during the past twosummers, the following subjects were taught: Science (experiments with DNA and bioluminescence under the guidance of the Yale Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry); English (Shakespeare); Math (Algebra and Geometry); History Research Workshop; and SSAT preparation classes.
