Multi-State Evaluation of Future Forward

In 2017, SREed worked with Education Analytics to obtain an Education Innovation and Research (EIR) grant from the Department of Education to scale up SPARK to three states under the name of Future Forward. Through a family-school-community partnership approach, Future Forward combines intensive one-on-one literacy tutoring with parent engagement to promote literacy skill development at school and at home. Our research project uses a randomized study to measure its impact on literacy, attendance and social-emotional learning. The expansion of Future Forward is occurring in the Milwaukee Public Schools, the Unified School District of Antigo, the Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools, the Sparta Areas School District, the Huntsville Alabama City Schools, and the Darlington County South Carolina School District.

Future Forward Fidelity Observations

As part of the EIR Future Forward project, sites use a structured observation instrument to monitor the quality and fidelity of tutoring. Future Forward sites should use the Future Forward Tutor Observation Form to document the results of these observations.
