Exemplary Charter School Collaboration Grant
Boston Collegiate Charter School
One of seven projects funded nationwide by the United States Department of Education, this project deepens the work between BCCS and the Jeremiah Burke High School. While One Dorchester looks ahead to the Common Core State Standards, this grant supports work in the here and now, aimed at raising the MCAS scores of the Jeremiah Burke through teacher-to-teacher collaboration and support for data-driven instruction. BCCS and Burke teachers work together to administer assessments, group students for remediation, and leverage technology for tutoring support. The project’s aspiration is to increase the MCAS scores in 10th grade English Language Arts and Math by a minimum of 10 points each. Another portion of the project is to intensify BCCS’ dissemination work through codifying and making available online the “100 1% Solutions” of Boston Collegiate.
