Approach

Achievement First

We have played a catalytic role in helping Achievement First (AF) to replicate its Navigator Program for K-8 math to selected partner schools in New York City outside AF’s traditional charter network. Our funding has enabled Achievement First to further develop self-directed learning modules and personalized learning playlists for students, implementation guides for teachers and stronger data tracking tools. The AF adapted materials help to address unfinished learning as a result of school closures and remote teaching. AF’s Navigator provides intensive coaching and tools that enable schools to effectively implement AF’s curriculum. AF NYC students are scoring at double the proficiency rates as their peers in local districts. For two years in a row, 75% of the Navigator partners had at least 5 percentage point growth on their state tests each year and nearly a third had 10+ percentage point growth.
