Students have the confidence, ability, and support to succeed within the classroom
In the North Shore, a 2016 study showed only 31% of North Shore’s 3rd graders are reading at or above grade level and unfortunately, some schools have pass rates of 10% or less.
The Staten Island Alliance aims to provide the North Shore’s young students with the academic and social supports necessary to have the confidence and ability to succeed in the classroom.
How We Will Measure Success
THE STATEN ISLAND ALLIANCE WILL USE THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA TO MONITOR THE SUCCESS OF OUTCOMES FOR OUR ACADEMIC SUCCESS EFFORTS:
An increase in the number and percent of students performing at or above grade level for reading and math by New York State Standard.
A decrease in the number and percentage of students who are chronically absent.
By 2022, the Staten Island Alliance will improve the overall well being of
children ages birth through eight years old on the North Shore community of Staten Island.
