FOREFRONT School Education Project Report

June 24, 2020 (FY20 Q2)

 

FOREFRONT’s progress toward the completion of its project is divided into two axes: construction/architecture and education. Together, excellent implementation in these two areas will make FOREFRONT School a high-quality educational opportunity for children in rural India who otherwise lack access.

 

Architecture

This reporting period, FOREFRONT School was largely completed with only additional utilities and annexes remaining to finish ahead of the target launch in August 2020. Attached you will find pictures of the completed building and the near completed entryway into the complex. Over the past three months, the entrance path, all floors, school gate, doors, stairwell with rails, and bathrooms were completed. This marks the achievement of a  key milestone in FOREFRONT’s education project.

 

 Education

During this quarter, FOREFRONT’s education team hired a school administrator who will manage the operations of FOREFRONT School. The hired administrator’s name is Lucy Yashoda and has over 20 years of experience in school management, administration and education. FOREFRONT is very excited to have Lucy as an “on the ground” advocate and manager of the school.

 

FOREFRONT has also continued principal recruitment and interviews of teacher candidates for the inaugural class of 40 students. This included putting up job postings and collecting and analyzing resumes of candidates. The Education program team interviewed over 40 candidates over the past three months. FOREFRONT is seeking two teachers, one leads and one assistant, for the initial group of 40 students. Finally, FOREFRONT has continued recruitment and advertisement for students to be part of the inaugural class at FOREFRONT School. Local FOREFRONT volunteers distributed fliers and informational packages to families in nearby villages to raise awareness of the school and persuade parents to apply for their child’s enrollment. To date, FOREFRONT has received just over 40 student applications which will be reviewed in the upcoming reporting period.

FOREFRONT School Launch Update FY20 Q1

FOREFRONT School Launch Project Report


FOREFRONT’s progress toward the completion of its project is divided into two axes: construction/architecture and education. Together, excellent implementation in these two areas will make FOREFRONT International School a high-quality educational opportunity for children in rural India who otherwise lack access.

Architecture

With funding fully secured for its completion, FOREFRONT continued construction of its school in Kolluru, India, this quarter. FOREFRONT still expects the school to be completed by late Spring 2020 in order for school to begin for the 2020 school year in June or July 2020. Pictures of the school can be found below. FOREFRONT has completed a management plan for the school and began to implement a recruitment plan for teachers and administration. A group of FOREFRONT education team members, including three teachers, will travel to Kolluru to conduct interviews of potential principals, school administrators and teachers. The school will begin with 40 students from both first and second year of primary school. This will allow for sustainable and gradual growth that will allow FOREFRONT to make any necessary adaptations as the school grows in size. 

Education

During this quarter, FOREFRONT’s executive director conducted a site visit of the after school English program. The program is led by a Purna Chandra, an experienced school teacher who receives ongoing support and training from FOREFRONT’s education program staff. Using the Jolly Phonics curriculum, the teacher leads children in English enrichment and wellness activities that will equip them with skills to become leaders in their community. Between 15 and 20 students attend the after-school education program on a daily basis. Over the past quarter, students have completed a review of all letters and sounds. They are currently studying vocabulary use and sentence making. Using their new phonetic skills, students are learning how to connect words together and write.
