16 Did you know? What percentage of our Juniors are DOING college by taking classes at Daley College? About 60% The average cost of a class at Daley is over $500. Goode has spent over $100,000 total per semester to support our Innovators.

17 Expansion School Sarah E. Goode STEM Academy has grown by close to 250 students every year. As an expansion school, we receive $500 per student for only our first class of students to cover all expenses including textbooks and any additional equipment and supplies (like security supplies, copiers, athletic equipment, science lab supplies, math manipulatives, etc.) Did you know that the average textbook costs over $100? Since our students take 8 courses per year (1 additional course than a typical CPS school) it would cost us over $800 to buy textbooks for every student for every class.

18 Answers to Questions and Concerns Communication: Monthly Parent Newsletter Ms. Kee, Manager of Operations, oversees updating the website Daley: All students, except those that have started a mini-session, have received their textbooks We have secured an additional bus to shuttle students to Daley We are continuing to improve the lunches for Daley College Resource: We have hired an Early College Coordinator Course is being restructured to ensure students reach our mission New Staff Members Be sure to check out the Monthly Parent Newsletter to learn more about our new staff

19 Answers to Questions and Concerns Textbooks: Our philosophy is that we need to expose our Innovators to use multiple resources including textbooks. We expect our teachers to utilize multiple resources when developing their lessons. We have provided our adults with unlimited copies. Test Scores: Ms. Huddleston is preparing several Parent Nights
