Current Projects

Alicia Sanchez Elementary School


With the generous gifts provided by our donors and in partnership with Impact on Education, the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation is able to provide supplemental and targeted literacy instruction to 2nd and 3rd graders via virtual tutoring at Alicia Sanchez Elementary. The 35-lesson program uses a structured literacy curriculum delivered by a low (~3:1) teacher-to-student ratio and will be offered to students based on assessments showing need, stamina to engage in after-school tutoring, consistent attendance, and behavioral performance.

Escuela Bilingue Pioneer Elementary

 

During the Spring 2021 semester, the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation is providing supplemental reading and math instruction and tutoring to approximately 50 fourth and fifth grade students which was made possible through the generous gifts provided by our donors and in partnership with Impact on Education.

These services will be offered to students selected based on assessment data, and Paraeducators will be trained to target the specific needs of each student using the learning platforms and curriculum provided. 


Why?

The intent of the these programs is to focus both on short-term literacy gaps stemming from pandemic school closures last spring and also longer-term literacy gaps that have been growing and widening since before the closures. The goal is to narrow the gaps and bring the students minimally up to grade level in literacy. This opportunity will also provide engagement between adults and students beyond the classroom, whereby students currently performing below grade level will have more eyes on them and more qualified individuals focusing their efforts to meet the students’
academic needs. 

Past Projects

In conjunction with Boulder Valley School District (BVSD), the Arly Kruse Educational Foundation provided one on one or small group tutoring to children in need. 

Offered through BVSD’s Lifelong Learning program, families are given an opportunity to enroll their child for tutoring at no cost based on grade and subject.

 

Upon enrollment, each child was assigned a tutor and meets with them online once a week for 60 minutes. Each session lasted 5-weeks at a time and are available on a first come, first serve basis. Four sessions offered throughout the school year.
