Community volunteers and parents were trained as tutors and teachers referred failing students to the new tutoring program named the “Thunderbird Resource Center”.
Focus of 2016 Grant: Thunderbird Resource Center Tutoring Program SCCF funding will enable the TRC to coordinate tutoring programs that enhance the quality of education and raise funds not provided by the Amphitheater District for education excellence. The TRC also maintains “The Book Nook”, an extension of the Painted Sky library. This resource room contains book sets that are utilized by teachers in their classroom lessons.
Measurable Results: Students are exited from the program when they have mastered grade level, benchmarks and skills. Other measurable outcomes are evaluated at the end of the year, as the program considers the number of students served and the number of volunteer tutors who worked in the TRC.
