BREAKTHROUGH COLLABORATIVE ANNUAL REPORT 2013


Dear Friends and Supporters, We believe that in order to improve educational outcomes for youth, particularly underserved youth, teacher preparation needs to be fundamentally re-envisioned and must begin as early as high school and college. We, as a nation, need to provide young people with opportunities to experience the rewards and rigors of teaching while they are still deciding what to do with their lives. In 2013, Breakthrough provided 856 high-school and college students—under the direction of Instructional Coaches—the opportunity to lead their own classrooms as Breakthrough Teaching Fellows, teaching 4,393 middle-school students. Our Teaching Residency remains one of the most competitive and prestigious summer experiences in the U.S. More importantly, as professional educators in classrooms across the country, our alumni demonstrate that they are better prepared, more committed, and uniquely equipped to be exceptional teachers and leaders. Breakthrough’s expansion this past summer into Birmingham, AL was the first step towards even greater impact in new communities. As described further in this report, Breakthrough also grew by expanding its reach in cities where we have been engaged for years, creating more placement opportunities for students and Teaching Fellows. Growth this past year has also meant strengthening our curricula and assessments for our students and building the ladder of engagement for our alumni. In the upcoming year, as we search for an executive director, we remain firmly committed to growing our unique model with new partners in new and existing cities and creating even more opportunities for under-resourced middle schoolers and exceptional college students. Now more than ever, public education needs a program like Breakthrough to inspire innovation and new possibilities among students, aspiring teachers, professional educators, administrators, policy makers, and parents. We look forward to sharing our continued success! Sincerely,

Nancy Diao Eve Niquette Interim Executive Director Board Chair

OUR STUDENTS

Strengthening Curricula and Assessments Research indicates that many students from lower-income backgrounds lose an average of two months of learning over summer break. Breakthrough’s Teaching Fellows use effective instructional techniques and vetted curricula to ensure measurable success for every Breakthrough student. The rigorous curricula, a hallmark of Breakthrough, is reversing this “summer slide,” leading to academic growth, rather than loss. In 2013, Breakthrough completed its threeyear Curriculum Pilot Project, with new and updated college-prep materials for math, literacy, and science. Additionally, Breakthrough piloted Renaissance Learning’s Common-Core aligned assessments for literacy as an instructional tool to help increase student literacy. Building on the pilot’s success, more than 2,700 students at over 20 sites will participate in the assessment in 2014.

Breakthrough uses a series of metrics to evaluate our student’s summer learning. The results from the 2013 Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project (MDTP) were incredibly encouraging. Over a single six-week summer, on average, we saw significant increases from the pre- to postassessments.

OUR TEACHING FELLOWS

Growing the Teacher Pipeline Research has proven that the quality of a teacher is the single most important in-school factor influencing student achievement. And yet, as a country, we struggle to recruit top candidates, train them adequately, and retain them once they enter the profession. The single greatest way to alter this paradigm is by drastically increasing the quality, quantity, preparedness, and diversity of young people entering the field of education. To achieve this, Breakthrough is preparing the next generation of aspiring teachers to enter and succeed as leaders in their classrooms.

Recruiting a larger, more diverse pool of applicants 2013 was a record-breaking year for the recruitment of Breakthrough Teaching Fellows — outstanding high-school and college students who teach our motivated middle-school students. Highlights from the 2013 recruitment cycle include: • An all-time record number of applications were submitted — a 23% increase from the previous year. • An Early Action deadline was implemented for the first time, resulting in a 361% increase in applications over the same date the previous year. This allowed us to fill nearly one-quarter of our positions by the end of January. • The application completion rate rose to 49%, an all-time high for Breakthrough. • Breakthrough continues to attract applicants from populations who are underrepresented in the teaching profession. The number of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) applicants increased by 62% over 2012; the number of applicants of color increased by 20%; and the number of male applicants grew by 13%. After this historic recruitment cycle, Breakthrough went on to select 856 Teaching Fellows, the largest cohort in our history.

Providing extensive training and valuable learning experiences The Breakthrough Teaching Residency is one of the most rigorous and rewarding summer experiences available in the U.S. Through Breakthrough’s Students Teaching Students model, Teaching Fellows teach and advise underserved, middle-school students during six-week academically rigorous summer sessions. At the start of the Residency, Breakthrough trains Fellows for two weeks in a common model of instruction for effective lesson planning, instructional strategies, and classroom management. Throughout the six-week summer program, they teach core academic and enrichment classes, engage in meetings and parent conferences, build relationships, and refine their teaching skills. At the conclusion of the summer, Fellows reflect on their successes, review student outcome data, and debrief the experience. Results from the 2013 Teaching Fellow post-summer survey indicate the cohort overwhelmingly valued their Breakthrough experiences. 2013 Teaching Fellow Satisfaction Teamwork between teachers and site staff Program leadership Overall Breakthrough experience 0%

Expanding our network to place Fellows into the field of education To maximize the impact of our expanding cohort of teacher alumni and to create a more defined pathway into careers in education, we continued to formalize new partnerships with top teacher training organizations. In 2013, we added seven Pipeline Partners. Breakthrough now has a total of 18 partners, including Boston Teacher Residency, MATCH Education, and Teach For America. Data from this highly-selective network reveals the high demand for our alumni: on average, our alumni are accepted by our partners at three to four times the national average.

OUR ALUMNI

Enhancing the Ladder of Engagement with Alumni Building off a successful inaugural Breakthrough Leadership Summit in 2012, Breakthrough hosted two summits in 2013 to help transition our alumni from the Breakthrough Teaching Residency to the teaching profession. We convened our most passionate and promising Teaching Fellow alumni for the intensive weekend summits. The key objectives of the summits were to: • Create connections: Participants networked and collaborated with Breakthrough teachers and leaders, to reflect on, learn from, and build upon their teaching experiences. • Develop instructional and leadership skills: Participants honed their skills in preparation for launching or developing their careers in education. • Engage directly with our Pipeline Partners: Participants interacted with representatives from high-performing charter schools, residency programs, and alternative certification schools from across the country to discuss current issues in education. • Be inspired by Breakthrough Alumni: Participants engaged with leaders in education who have had transformative experiences at Breakthrough and are now teaching and leading across the country. 2013 Participant Satisfaction 100%

OUR LEADERS Developing Leaders Across the Country Breakthrough continues to invest in the professional development of site instructional and administrative staff. In November 2013, Breakthrough hosted its annual Work Group Conference for four days in San Francisco. The conference has become a featured forum for our national and site staff to meet and share best practices, develop new curricula, and improve programming across the country.

EXCELLENCE BY DESIGN

At the 2013 conference, guided by the overarching theme of “Excellence by Design,” 58 participants from 24 sites across the Collaborative gathered to: • Build their skills, invest in one another, strengthen our evaluation systems, and share a common vision. • Conduct work sessions on position-specific initiatives to create materials and protocols that can be implemented locally and nationally. • Create connections across the Collaborative. According to feedback from the 2013 post-conference survey: • 96% of the participants agreed that they had the opportunity to create connections across the Collaborative; • 90% agreed the conference was a valuable professional development experience; and • 98% agreed that they would apply they learned at the conference to their work. In addition to the annual conference, Breakthrough also hosted several other professional development opportunities in 2013, including a spring work session, one week-long Intern Teacher Training Initiative (ITTI) 101 training, and three regional Instructional Coach trainings.

“The [WGC] provided ‘ready to go’ information; we left with so many resources that we could use right now.” — 2013 Work Group Conference Participant

OUR SITE GROWTH

Launching New Sites to Serve More Youth Here are just a few examples of how Breakthrough extended its reach in 2013 by creating more placement opportunities for students and Teaching Fellows.

Breakthrough Silicon Valley

When Breakthrough Silicon Valley (BTSV) was founded in 2002, it served 25 middle school students from one school in the San Jose Unified School District. Now, thanks to years of growth and its recent expansion in 2013 into the Franklin-McKinley School District (FMSD) in east San Jose, BTSV is now a six-year comprehensive program that serves 300 students from more than 30 schools. Through its partnership with FMSD, BTSV is reaching students in communities that often have high rates of poverty, violent crime, and gang activity, as well as low rates of student achievement. Breakthrough alumna and longtime staff member, Tina Briceno, led the launch of the new site. She recruited and selected 55 bright, motivated sixth graders and 42 talented Teaching Fellows. Tina also worked tirelessly to build relationships with school administrators and teachers, and bring the Breakthrough culture to a group of Instructional Coaches, Teaching Fellows, and staff who had never before experienced a Breakthrough summer. The students’ and their parents’ positive responses translated to a high attendance rate at 96% last summer. Additionally, more than 75% of the cohort of students has maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher throughout the school year.

By the fall of 2018, BTSV will serve 600 students annually in grades 7-12.

Breakthrough Greater Boston

In 2012, after 20 years of success in Cambridge, Breakthrough Greater Boston (BTGB) announced the opening of a second site in Boston. BTGB launched an advancement campaign to support the replication of its proven program and led a thorough selection process to identify its new partner school. BTGB signed a six-year partnership agreement with TechBoston Academy, a Boston Public School. TechBoston serves students from sixth through twelfth grades, making it an ideal match for BTGB’s six-year model. By the time the program is fully scaled, BTGB will serve over one third of TechBoston Academy’s student population. In 2013, BTGB recruited its inaugural class of 30 highly-motivated rising seventh graders, 100% of whom are of color, low-income, and will be the first in their families to graduate from college. Through this ambitious expansion, BTGB will double the number of at-risk students and aspiring teachers served, totaling more than 600 students and over 100 Teaching Fellows engaged annually across both the Boston and Cambridge campuses by 2018.

2013 marked a turning point in Breakthrough Collaborative’s long and successful history. Breakthrough embarked on a national growth plan to partner directly with school districts, beginning in Birmingham, AL. In partnership with Birmingham City Schools, we were thrilled to launch Breakthrough Birmingham in the summer of 2013. In its first year, Breakthrough Birmingham served an initial cohort of 35 seventh-graders and 12 Teaching Fellows. On the Renaissance STAR Literacy Assessment, students increased their reading levels by five months in just six weeks. Most lowincome students lose months of reading skills over the summer.

Instructional Reading Level 5.8 5.6 5.4

After a strong inaugural summer, we are preparing to launch a second Breakthrough Birmingham site for summer 2014. This addition will allow small cohorts of students from every Birmingham middle school the opportunity to have a Breakthrough experience.

FUNDER SPOTLIGHTS S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation The S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation continues to invest in Breakthrough with a specific focus on helping us recruit, train, and guide college STEM majors towards careers in education. Through a sequenced set of on- and off-line engagements, Breakthrough is meeting three critical goals: (1) attract diverse, talented college STEM majors to teach at a Breakthrough Summer Residency; (2) provide comprehensive training in both content knowledge and pedagogy; (3) and upon graduation, facilitate their placement into a teacher preparation program or Charter Management Organization. The S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation has also generously supported Breakthrough to ensure the success and sustainability of our expansion in summer 2014 in Oakland, CA and our ability to reach more high-need California students, aspiring teachers, and professional educators.

Gap Foundation Gap Foundation has supported Breakthrough since 1994. Recently, Gap Foundation invested in our efforts to build a framework for leadership at Breakthrough, outlining the competencies we screen for and cultivate in our students, our Teaching Fellows, and our Instructional Coaches and leaders. This framework also informs our programming for returning program participants as well as our participants’ experiences at every stage in their Breakthrough journeys. Last year, we piloted the first subset of skills with a select group of sites. With their feedback and evaluation data, we are currently evolving and finalizing the framework for rollout to the entire Collaborative.

Capital One Foundation With Capital One Foundation’s support, we are building the first online alumni portal in Breakthrough’s history. In 2014, all 16,000 of our Teaching Fellow alumni will be able reconnect and access lesson plans and instructional guides, and begin to create a community of Breakthrough alumni from across the country. Our online solution will allow applicants, Teaching Fellows, and alumni to connect and engage with each other, access a robust library of resources, apply as returning Fellows, share lesson plans and other key classroom resources, seek advice throughout their career searches, and learn about job opportunities from traditional and alternative teacher preparation programs. This investment addresses the organizational need to unify and streamline our national alumni outreach efforts, creating an unprecedented opportunity for Breakthrough to more effectively connect, engage, influence, and integrate all alumni into the national Breakthrough community.
