Are your students looking for ways to improve and increase their math skills? Then Elevate [Math] is here!

INTENSIVE, FUN PROGRAM GETS STUDENTS ON TRACK

Elevate [Math] is an intensive but fun summer program that’s putting more middle-school students on track for college while also providing professional development to teachers. It prepares incoming middle-school students to successfully complete algebra I or the Common Core State Standards equivalent in eighth grade through:

  • 75 hours of instruction for students from credentialed teachers and college-level teaching assistants
  • 40 hours of professional development for teachers including instructional strategies aligned to Common Core, math practices, technology, student engagement, mindset and more
  • Blended learning that combines traditional classroom teaching with supervised technology tool usage to provide differentiated instruction and job skills
  • College awareness and encouragement through field trips to college campuses, as well as a special college-information night for students and families
  • Additional parent engagement through progress reports and helpful resources.

Together with education nonprofit Silicon Valley Education Foundation, we’re rolling this unique program out to school districts across the state.
