2019-20 Program Results

June 3, 2020

As we head into the summer, we are excited to celebrate the outstanding academic progress made by nearly 1,200 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) students during the 2019-20 school year. Although COVID-19 prompted a shortened year of in-school programming, students still made considerable progress during their time in the program!

Here are some of our results:

  • 92% of students passed one notebook and 49% passed two or more notebooks through March 2020 – on track to meet end-of-year program growth goals!
  • 85% of teachers saw improvement in their Heart students’ foundational math skills by January 2020.*
  • 86% of teachers noticed increased confidence and/or enthusiasm in their Heart students by January 2020.*
  • 99% of volunteers rated their tutoring experience as positive, and 91% noticed improvement in their student’s math skills by January 2020.*

*In line with or exceeding previous years

We are confident that students were on track for another great year of final assessment results had they not missed the last 6 weeks of tutoring, based on the data points we gathered through March. Congratulations and thank you to students, tutors, donors, teachers, and all involved in this growth.
