Children Rising is formerly Faith Network of the East Bay. Their program, Path2Math, is a child-centered math tutoring program that develops foundational math understanding and critical reasoning abilities for children in the second grade – the age a vast majority of educators now believe is key for determining future educational success. Path2Math will replicate the best practices of Children Rising’s successful reading program, providing in depth pre- and post-assessments of participating students, tutor training and coaching, and a math curriculum closely aligned with the common core math curriculum implemented at the schools. The program will eventually be available to all 19 schools currently partnered with Children Rising and will provide crucial interventional tutoring to hundreds of second graders who are viewed by their teachers as most at-risk of falling through the cracks at such a precious early age.
