Maximize Free Time in High School: Baltimore Design School


Baltimore Design School’s (BDS) first period  was reserved for advisory, homework, and intervention time. However, students were not always productive. School leadership wanted better use of that time by providing 9th graders with additional math and English support.


Eurekii provided live, hybrid instruction during the period to review and solidify skills learned in math and English class. The groups were divided so that there were both enrichment and intervention groups. Each group met virtually once a week with five to eight students per group. Eurekii communicated with the teachers to design the small group instruction so that the coordination of in-class and small groups were aligned, yielding maximum potential growth.


Both students and teachers reported the sessions positively impacted learning and school performance. BDS plans to expand this intervention for the next school year.
