Cluster Tutoring keeps growing in numbers and in its positive effects on learning. Whether it’s adding a summer program, enhancing student math skills through tutor training, or seeing all of our seniors be accepted to college and career development programs, Cluster staff and volunteers always find new ways to engage students in finding their own paths to success.
- Cluster held its third Summer Reading Program for 41 students in grades kindergarten through 6th grade, divided into four groups by age and grade level of approximately 10 students each. Four teachers, four program aides, and a program coordinator met twice a week to work on phonics, writing skills, and story structure.
- Parents of Cluster students reported an overall 98 percent satisfaction rate with the tutoring program.
- Research shows that having 3rd-grade students reading at or above grade level is a good indicator of future academic success. Last year, 76 percent of Cluster’s 3rd graders improved their fluency by an average of 51 percent.
- 65 percent of Cluster’s students showed improvement or maintained an A or B grade average in core courses.
