Overview

Mission Statement

To ensure that all students have the support, experience and preparation needed to access high-demand career and postsecondary pathways through a seamless early college and career readiness partnership called Roxbury Massachusetts Advanced Polytechnic Pathway (RoxMAPP).


Background Statement

Established in the June of 2013, RoxMAPP was designed to address the middle skills gap for regional employers and accelerate learning for Boston Public Schools (BPS). RoxMAPP is a collaborative initiative of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Education (EOE), City of Boston, BPS, MPTVHS, and RCC. It formed the Joint Industrial Advisory Board (JIAB) to oversee the development of RoxMAPP. The Board, is Chaired by Year Up Founder/CEO Gerald Chertavian, along with executive & campus leadership from Suffolk Construction, Partners Healthcare, State Street, MBTA, UMASS Boston, RCC, MPTVHS, and the Boston PIC. 

To accomplish this, RoxMAPP is developing is a “school within two schools” model called an early college and career readiness immersion model. RoxMAPP will offer six-year pathways that allow high school students to earn up to 15 college credits towards an AA/AS as well as non-credit industry certifications. For students that enroll and complete their AA/AS at RCC, industry employers will provide graduates at least one interview in their career pathway upon completion of AA/AS or acceptance in a pre-apprenticeship programs. RoxMAPP has limited its scope to six pathways which includes Allied Health, Building Science & Construction Management, TranSTEM, Life Sciences/Biotechnology, Financial Services, and Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management. 

Student outcomes at MPTVHS fall below prevailing trends within BPS and the state. Madison Park currently enrolls 921 students, representing some of Boston’s most in need youth; 91.4% are low income, 55.7% are non-native speakers, 28.4% are English Language Learners (ELL) and 40.3% have a diagnosed disability. MPTVHS students are predominantly African American (41.5%) and Hispanic (49.8%) and are 58.6% male. Madison Park’s four-year graduation rate is 62.9% and the five-year graduation rate is 70.2%, lagging behind citywide rates of 66.7% and 72.2% respectively. The average daily attendance rate at MPTVHS is 88.3% (Citywide: 92.1%). The annual student dropout rate, as of June 2013, was 6.4%, surpassing both BPS at 5.3% and the state at 2.0%. In 2011-2012, of the 207 students who graduated from MPTVHS, 99 attended college or university (47.8%). Of those enrolling in post-secondary, 73.7% were at community colleges.

Given the students we serve, RoxMAPP offers a unique opportunity to address the current academic deficits while building the support systems (social, emotional, academic) that accelerates student learning.


 

Impact Statement

Jobs from the Future (JFF) helped facilitate the RoxMAPP kick off in 2013. RCC and MPTVHS  conducted 9th and 10th grade curriculum mapping in ELA for 9th and 10th grade with Common Core standards and RCC remediation outcomes to help accelerate academic expectations. It also launched a pilot phase with students from MPTVHS's Nursing Assistant program. Then the JIAB hired RoxMAPP Project Director hired and begin on April 2014. By the end of SY 2014-2015, (3) RoxMAPP students graduated; (2) enrolled at BHCC and (1) enrolled at RCC. RoxMAPP continuation students (8) enrolled in second dual enrollment course for the Fall 2014 semester at RCC. Students enrolled in English 101 passed with a 50% success rate. Eight out of fifteen students who did not pass the pre-test gained enough points to pass the post-test-- a 53% success rate. 6 students did not become college eligible to enroll at RCC. Over the summer July 2014 – 32 students participate (includes all RoxMAPP continuation students) in the Boston PIC summer career immersion program and RCC Summer STEM Academy (8). By the end of 2014, BPS, MPTVHS, RCC, RoxMAPP, and BPIC approved two year Memorandum of Understanding that will guide the upcoming pathway planning, design, and implementation efforts.

By 2016, we anticipate that we will have achieved the following student and systems outcomes. We will have: (1) Recruited 100 new students into RoxMAPP (9th -12th grade); (2) Placed 80% of our 10-12th grade students into internships; (3) Placed 100% of incoming and current 9th graders in the RCC Summer STEM academy; (4) Ensured that at least 20 students are earning college credits (total of 60 credits); (5) Achieved 100% high school graduation and college matriculation rate of RoxMAPP’s pilot cohort; (6) A multi-year College Experience and Career Readiness course at MPTVHS; (7) Built a Sector Based WPL Sequence (9th – 14th) for at least three RoxMAPP career pathways; (8) Established effective student support systems.

CEO Statement

While Massachusetts has recovered from the Great Recession faster and stronger than most states, it still faces a significant middle skills gap between under and unemployed workers and the jobs in demand. The Boston area economy is growing, and industries critical to the innovation economy such as transportation, engineering, health care, life sciences, financial services, advanced manufacturing and others, continue to grow. These industries and sectors require a well-educated workforce to enable and sustain growth. Nonetheless, not all residents are not benefiting from the recovery equally, particularly low-income people of color and immigrant communities. 

RoxMAPP represents a unique opportunity to close the Opportunity Divide in between the talented young adults of MPTVHS and RCC and the resources they need to gain access to higher education and careers. For too long student outcomes on both campuses have fallen short compared to the counterparts in the city and across the state. Given the proximity of the two campuses and the current skills gap facing our country, RoxMAPP was launched by the state and city to leverage the best resources available to build a seamless early college and career readiness partnership.
 
In Boston, the unemployed are disproportionately younger and have lower levels of educational attainment. Our young people have been the hardest hit with over 28.6 percent of our youth, ages 16- 24, unemployed with a large proportion of whom have a high school diploma but lack post-secondary credentials. They are competing for jobs that require at least an Associate’s degree yet more than 48% of Boston residents hold a Bachelor degree or higher. In the last decade employment opportunities have grown almost exclusively for workers with a college degree. This outlook is further augmented by the fact that by 2020, 70 percent of all jobs in Massachusetts will require a post-secondary credential beyond high school.    
 
Given this context, as adults we are responsible for developing the environment that allows each student, particularly low-income and students of color, to unlock their potential. Conventional pedagogies have fallen short and has unequally benefited high performing students  and high performing schools. RoxMAPP offers the City of Boston, BPS, higher education institutions, and industry an opporrunity to restart and re-frame the need to address income inequality and a growing middle skills gap through the creation of seamless six year career pathways (9th -14th).
 
  
 
 

Board Chair Statement

Since its establishment, RoxMAPP has experienced formative challenges and successes. As noted in the background statement, we built an influential and committed Advisory Board of the region’s largest employers, the region’s workforce development board, and leadership from UMass Boston, RCC, MPTVHS, and BPS. Additionally, we successfully kicked off RoxMAPP with the first ever joint curriculum planning and alignment effort between RCC and MPTVHS. This will accelerate academic expectations and ensure that more students can become eligible for dual enrollment. We also successfully launched our pilot cohort with 17 students in the 11th and 12th grade from the Nursing Assistance cluster. In total, we have had 3 RoxMAPP students graduate high school and enroll at BHCC and RCC. We expect 7 students to graduate this June having earned a total of 54 college credits, with a persistence rate of almost 60%. Lastly, we hired our Project Director to oversee the development of RoxMAPP and an Early College Coordinator to focus on student engagement and program implementation.

Due to past and current leadership and personnel transitions at MPTVHS, BPS, and RCC, it has been difficult to maintain RoxMAPP’s momentum and focus. To mitigate this, the Boston PIC allocated a PIC Success Coach and Career Specialist to work directly with students. RoxMAPP ceased recruitment efforts for Fall 2014 to focus on hiring an Early College Coordinator. To maintain momentum and focus, we need to effectively balance program implementation and resource development; therefore, we have decided to scaffold the process for career pathway development over the next two and a half years. To expand participation in RoxMAPP we need to invest in greater student support services. MPTVHS is host to many student support services, but many function independently of the classroom. As a first step, the RoxMAPP Early College Coordinator is working with MPTVHS’ Guidance Department, Boston PIC, RCC, and UMass Boston’s Project Reach to assess all current services and needs to develop a final recommendation to coordinate services for RoxMAPP students. Based on their recommendation, RoxMAPP will work with both campuses to integrate recommended services with those already in place.

It’s critical that our young adults are prepared for and have access to careers and higher education. It is critical to have opportunities at a young age to make sure what you are studying connects to your passion and the economy. RoxMAPP ensures that, beginning in high school, our youth gain the awareness and exposure they need in relevant immersion activities and begin the postsecondary pathway needed to build their careers and be strong citizens. The alignment of education and the labor market is a critical part of ensuring our young people are able to realize their aspirations. For fifteen years I have been fortunate to serve young adults who need opportunities like this one and RoxMAPP is an extension of my personal commitment to ensure all young adults have what they need to reach their potential.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

To most effectively balance program implementation, the target population served, and resource development, RoxMAPP is scaffolding the process for career pathway development over the next two and half years.  Over the spring and summer of 2015, several planning teams will be formed, including the (1) College Experience and Career Readiness Working Group, (2) Building Science and Construction Management, (3) Financial Services, (4) and TranSTEM. The first working group will be consist of campus administrators from both campus while the remainder will also include the Boston Private Industry Council (Boston PIC) and employers.
By the end of summer of 2015, we expect that we will have achieved the following outcomes in at least three career pathways:
(1) A multi-year College Experience and Career Readiness course at MPTVHS that includes a Sector Based WPL Sequence (9th – 14th.
(2). Definition of at least three career pathway summaries that includes: a description of the selected industry, why it was selected, potential career pathway entry level job opportunities, and 9-14 course high school and college course listing.
(3). Definition of what workplace learning experiences should be offered;
(4.) Updated implementation and pathway development project plan for SY 2015 - 2016.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

In 2014, both campuses, RoxMAPP, BPS, and the Boston PIC signed a two-year Memorandum of Understanding (November 2014 – November 2016) to define agreement and collaboration among all parties. Due to current leadership transitions in the Governor’s office, BPS, and MPTVHS, the core leadership of RoxMAPP decided to delay critical decision-making related to data, communications, evaluation, and governance. To address this matter, the RoxMAPP Project Director and the Chair of its Board will facilitate and coordinate with RCC, the City of Boston, BPS, and the new MPTVHS Headmaster to renew the city and state compact. It will also use this vehicles to inform the 501c3 formation process of RoxMAPP.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

During the pilot phase of RoxMAPP (FY14), finances were shared by EOE, RCC, and BPS. The majority of funds (2/3rd) were used for start up pathway development expenditures and personnel salary/fringe benefits. The remaining 1/3 was uses to support students directly. To develop a sustainable and accurate finance and fundraising plan, RoxMAPP intends to use the renewal of city and state compact to address in a comprehensive fashion. It also intends to coordinate federal, state and executive lobbying efforts with City's Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and RoxMAPP to address a sustainable funding solution.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?
