About the InternshipDuties:
Provide small group tutoring for some of our "bottom 25%" performing students in K-6th grade. Our school program is accelerated and during the school day, our teachers instruct in a faced paced manner.
Small group reinforcement will benefit our slower learners.
Legacy Traditional School Queen Creek is a K-8 charter located in San Tan Valley. We are "Title 1," with 33% of our students qualifying for free and reduced lunch. We are in our fifth school year. We opened with 450 students in 2010 and currently have 1,400 students on campus.
The community need our intern will address is mainly additional educational support. Oftentimes our students come from families in which both parents are working fulltime and do not have the time or the financial resources to afford small group tutoring.
The impact an intern will make by providing this specific need for these students is far reaching. The stakes are high for third graders. If they do not meet the expected criteria for end of the year testing, they will not be promoted to fourth grade. The sixth graders who will benefit from this program will have the opportunity to be successful at the JH level in mathematics.
