JFYNetWorks Staff Wrap Up Year With Thanks
by Gary Kaplan, JFYNetWorks Executive Director
The school year isn’t over until you’ve counted up the numbers. Last week, the staff of JFYNetWorks finished tallying the results of the 2015-16 year. We had over 3600 students working on college readiness in our 13 Massachusetts schools and two out of state. They logged thousands of hours of blended instruction in reading and math and gained tens of thousands of points on our assessment tests. On the crucial metrics of remedial courses eliminated and tuition and fees saved, they did themselves, and us, proud. They eliminated more than 460 remedial college courses and saved $272,000 in tuition and fees that can now be invested in credit-earning courses. Added to our previous totals, JFYNetWorks has helped students eliminate 2500 remedial courses and save $1,371,000. If we look happy in this picture, that’s why.
