Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

Over the past 30 years Quantum Learning has partnered with schools and school districts across the U.S. with a diverse student population from highly at risk, high poverty situations to elite private school populations. Programs are tailored to the specific needs and learning modalities of the students we are supporting through our professional development programs for administrators, teachers, workshops for parents and student learning and life skills programs.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

Pre, during and post evaluations and assessments help us to guage the progress and needs of the individual clients. Following is an example of the assessement results from our work with CIVA Charter School:

9th grade 2008 2009 2010
Reading 33% 71% 79%
Writing 19% 43% 48%
Math 10% 7% 14%

10th grade 2008 2009 2010
Reading 44% 59% 76%
Writing 28% 38% 48%
Science 31% 31% 38%
Math 13% 7% 17%

- Note percentage of increases between 2008 and 2010.

There has been a huge shift in overall achievement since CIVA began implementing Quantum Learning over the past two years. Discipline problems are next to none.

The 8 Keys are so easy to use. They mean something on their own and then we incorporate them throughout the year. Students understand them and really like them. They support each other and talk about Living Above the Line with each other

CIVA has an arts and science focus, but are happy that math scores are also improving. They're even better this year!

Overall 82% reduction in teacher disciplinary referrals.
