The Anoka-Hennepin Compensatory Pilot Program is a state funded effort to examine student
impact when Compensatory Education dollars are reallocated to 2nd and 3rd grades in three pilot
schools. Shifting the traditional allocation of funds allows the district to provide a major
intervention in three schools with high populations of at-risk students. The intervention includes
program structures for mathematics and reading, changing instructional delivery methods in
math and reading, providing intense professional development for teachers in math and reading,
coaching follow-up at each site, and significant oversight.
The Year 1 Report reviews student achievement results from the pilot schools and a matched
set of control students, levels of implementation of the project in classrooms, impact of
strategies on outcomes and changes in teacher and staff attitudes toward the project.
