Evidence that services have been effective:

The Club Z! program has clearly accelerated the achievement of Title I students in Title I schools.  In fact, the Club Z! program is so effective that in some cases it has eliminated the need for Supplemental Education Services in certain school districts.  For example, in the school year of 2002-2003 Club Z! was the sole provider of SES in Forsyth County, Georgia.  Approximately 75 Title I students participated in the Club Z! SES program.   Students in the Club Z! program experienced unprecedented results, “some of those students jumped as many as three grade levels”, which clearly demonstrates that Club Z! tutorial services create success for Title I students.   Upon the completion of the program, “All the schools in Forsyth County leapt right off the failing schools list, so their students were no longer eligible for tutoring services” (Siobhan).

Will transportation to the service location be provided at no charge if requested? (Note: LEAs are not required to provide or pay for transportation)

Club Z! is convenient and accessible to all qualified students.  Our tutors go directly to each student’s house – which eliminates any transportation on the parent(s)/guardian(s) behalf.  Club Z! in home tutoring requires that a parent or legal guardian be present in the home at all times during each session.  Club Z! tutoring is easily accessible by public transportation as well, because Club Z! sessions can also be held at locations based on each families needs.  For example, sessions are held on school grounds (where applicable and under agreement with school/district), at community centers, public libraries, or other public facilities to be determined on a per case basis.  Accessibility to public transportation is always taken into account before a location is determined.
