Crossover Academic Mentoring Program Introduction

The Crossover Academic Mentoring Program is aimed at literacy and mathematics development and academic empowerment of students in Indian River County ages eight and above who are at-risk of falling below their grade level and reaching their highest potential. Experience has shown that “students who scored in the highest percentile read the most and had encountered the most words. Likewise, the lowest-performing students in the class not only read the very least but also encountered a minimal amount of words” (The Daily 5: Fostering Literacy Independence in the Elementary Grades, Boushey & Moser). Crossover Mission is developed and designed in cooperation with principals and educators from the School District of Indian River County, and in particular, those schools and personnel which directly impact the Crossover student population.
