City Year - Year 2 Evaluation Report, 2014-2015

January 1, 2016

City Year has been working in Philadelphia schools to support under-performing students and teachers for over 10 years. The program deploys teams of corps members to provide targeted, one-on-one or small group support in the areas of English, math, attendance, and behavior, as well as school-wide activities aimed at improving school climate. This report reflects the second consecutive year that The School District of Philadelphia's Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) has partnered with the William Penn Foundation to evaluate the program in 11 Philadelphia elementary and high schools. The Year 1 (School Year 2013-2014) report was released in the fall of 2014. This report concentrates on Year 2 (School Year 2014-2015) programming, making comparisons to Year 1 where appropriate. It follows the mid-year formative report and the mid-year qualitative report, which were delivered in spring of 2015.

City Year: Year 1 Evaluation Report, 2013-2014

September 1, 2014

City Year is an education-focused nonprofit organization that partners with high needs public schools to enhance the quality of the learning environment in the areas of attendance, behavior, and course performance. This is achieved by deploying teams of City Year corps members to the schools. The expectation is that students who receive support from City Year corps members in the areas of English, math, attendance, and behavior will show growth in their academic and behavioral outcomes. With funding from the William Penn Foundation, City Year is being implemented in 11 high needs public schools within The School District of Philadelphia (SDP or District); targeted support is provided to at-risk students in grades 6 to 9. The Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) is currently evaluating City Year's effectiveness in meeting the above goals for the 2013-2014 school year (SY) – Year 1— and extending into the 2014-2015 SY – Year 2.
