Why City Year loves Blueprint Schools Network

Founded in 2010, Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit organization that promotes educational equity and improves life outcomes for students by partnering with states, districts and schools to plan, implement and monitor school improvement initiatives. Blueprint’s whole-school improvement is grounded in a framework of five core strategies. These strategies emerged through analyses of the attributes that drive student achievement and represent common elements capable of closing the opportunity gap.

The foundation of the Blueprint Math Fellows Program stems from one of the strategies that consistently demonstrated the most significant gains in student achievement: providing data-driven, small-group, differentiated instruction. In 2010, the Blueprint Math Fellows Program launched as a standalone intervention service. Blueprint is actively growing and currently partnering with public school districts and public charter school networks in Bay Area, CA; Denver Metro Area, CO; East Saint Louis, IL; Nashville, TN; and Washington, D.C., to plan and implement math tutoring programs.

The City Year experience is a strong indicator of future success at Blueprint Schools Network, and serving with City Year strengthens an applicant’s chances for being selected as a Blueprint Fellow.
