My Student’s Team: Can Family and Community Support Help Children Succeed in School?

Grant Year: 2017

Todd Rogers will direct an experimental evaluation of an intervention designed to help adults play a more active role in supporting educational achievement among low-income children. He will partner with three school districts to evaluate the My Student’s Team intervention, which enlists adults other than a child’s parent to become mentors to students. The mentors will receive regular updates on the performance of their mentees along with tips on engaging them about their performance, areas in which they are struggling, and positive study habits. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of shorter briefs.
