About Blueprint Schools Network (“Blueprint”)

Founded in 2010, Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit organization that promotes educational equity and improves life outcomes for students by partnering with states, districts, and schools to plan, implement, and monitor school improvement initiatives. Blueprint’s whole- school improvement approach to rapidly improving student achievement at low-performing public schools is grounded in a framework of five core strategies. These strategies emerged through analyses of the attributes that drive student achievement and represent common elements of schools capable of closing the achievement gap in the lowest performing schools.

One of the strategies that consistently demonstrated the most significant gains in student achievement is providing data-driven, small-group, differentiated instruction. Subsequently, we launched our small group differentiated instruction strategy “the Blueprint Math Fellows Program” as a standalone intervention service. Since that time, our Math Fellows have served students from grades 3-10 at more than 100 schools serving more than 20,000 students in The Oakland Unified School District (OUSD), Boston Public Schools (MA), Holyoke Public Schools (MA), Salem Public Schools (MA), Denver Public Schools (CO), East Saint Louis School District 189 (IL), and Saint Louis Public Schools (MO).
