Abstract:

This report describes the 1999-2000 work of the Omaha Public School Tutoring Program, one recipient of a Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) grant to support the Department of Education's America Reads Challenge Initiative. McREL was charged with issuing and monitoring four subcontracts with tutoring partnerships to provide training for federal work-study tutors and community volunteers; delivering abstracts from each subcontracting tutoring partnership; documenting innovative promising and best practices in the four subcontract sites; and communicating regularly regarding project progress and status. At the conclusion of the project (April 1999), the Omaha Program requested an extension. Subsequently, it submitted interim and final reports. The primary goal of the Omaha Public School Tutoring Program was training tutors to offer more skill-focused educational experiences in which students could be meaningfully engaged in improving and maintaining basic reading skills. In 1999-2000, goals included training 120 volunteers and providing services to 200 students. Overall, 221 tutors received training. In addition to formal orientation and on-the-job training, 112 volunteers received additional training and mentoring. Two appendixes, which comprise the bulk of the publication, present information on the revised scope of work and a final report and addendum. (Sm).
