Catch Every Child
Catch Every Child is "proof-of-concept" initiative created in partnership with the Winton Woods City School District (WWSD). It is a three-year project (2018-2020) designed to aggressively help students who have fallen behind academically. Envision Children chose the WWSD because the demographics of the students in need matched up with the population EC focuses its attention on--economically disadvantaged minority children.
In September 2017 the WWSD identified 762 children in grades K-4 who were non-proficient in reading and/or mathematics. Proficiency is determined by how a student scores on the Ohio Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Test. If you would like to know more about the MAP Test here is brief overview: MAP Test Info. The two primary objectives of the Catch Every Child initiative are:
- 85% of all students enrolled in the program will achieve proficiency at grade level, as measured by the Ohio MAP Test, in reading and math within three academic years.
- 85% of all students enrolled in the program will achieve all A's and B's on their report cards within three academic years.
In order to achieve these two goals, Envision Children asks parents to enroll their children in two of its core programs--Extended Day Program (EDP) and the Academic Summer Enrichment Program (ASEP). Admittance into the programs is voluntary and is not mandated by the WWSD.
- In the 2018-2019 school year, 191 students enrolled into the EDP. 24 students attended the Kindergarten Challenge. 41 students attended the ASEP and 24 attended the Rockin' Robotics Camp.
The EDP started in the second week of October 2017. Students received an average of 71 days of instruction from October through mid-March. 1st and 2nd grade students received one hour of tutoring each day; 3rd and 4th grade students received 90 minutes of tutoring each day. The results below compare progress from the results of the MAP Test in September 2017 to the results of the April 2018 MAP Test. A downloadable report is available below the snapshot results.
The Core Programs at Envision Children include" Academic Summer Enrichment Program (ASEP), Extended Day Program (EDP), Pump Up the STEM (After School STEM, Power Saturdays and our Summer STEM Camp (Rockin' Robotics in 2018) and our Kindergarten Challenge (KC).
Wrapped around our core programs is a vibrant private tutoring program that assists students already receiving help in a small group setting to receive additional individualized attention and instruction. Tutoring session run 60-90 minutes and are held 1-3 times weekly.
