In school and on track: City Year’s strategy for long-term impact in America’s highest-need schools

Together with our school, research, nonprofit and philanthropic partners, City Year is working toward realizing our vision of educational excellence for students, particularly those who live in our nation’s largest urban centers and attend systemically under-resourced schools. With the support of our partners, City Year in 2012 developed an ambitious Long-Term Impact (LTI) strategy to achieve this goal and we made significant progress during Phase I. We are committed to building on our successes to date, and to making even greater strides during Phase II.

Closing the implementation gap: leveraging City Year and national service as a new human capital strategy to transform low performing school

The implementation gap is what results when teachers’ time and school resources are unable to meet student needs, and it’s something that frequently happens in many of today’s systemically under-resourced schools. Closing the implementation gap takes an in-depth look at the challenges schools face every day and highlights the role national service can play to help improve student achievement and close the implementation gap in the schools that need it the most.
