Background Statement Genesis School is a nationally recognized charter school under the sponsorship of the University of Missouri-Kansas City serving the local urban youth in our neighborhood ages kindergarten through 8th grade. Since 1975, Genesis has been more than an academic setting preparing students for success. It has been a second home, providing a caring atmosphere structured on the African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child.” For Genesis students, the proverb is more than just a catchy statement, it is a functional reality. Genesis understands what it means to look at students as individuals. After 30 years, staff has learned how a caring learning environment actually removes barriers. Motivated by our students’ courage, care teams meet weekly in strategy sessions that support each student’s development with data collected daily using the Response to Intervention Model.Additionally, the counseling department offers each student access to licensed individual, family and group counseling. After 25 years of service to at-risk youth, Genesis became a charter school in 1999. Accredited by North Central, Genesis received a ten year charter school renewal in 2005. In 2006 Genesis became a Local Education Agency. In 2008 Genesis added 5th grade and the Virtual Academy to service safe schools violators.In 2010, Genesis transitioned from a middle school to serving first through eighth grade. Because of our success, we have added more classes this year and we are now serving 260 students with a waiting list.

Also, 90% of our students receive some sort of government assistance. 
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

 Genesis School targets high learning outcomes while fostering a caring and supportive place, giving students an opportunity to mitigate the risk factors encountered in their daily living. Genesis provides a persistence of effort and comprehensive and developmental programs for all students. Genesis understands that before students can adequately prepare themselves to be challenged academically, their mental health needs and distressful life circumstances must be addressed. Students who attend Genesis agree that the teachers motivate them to learn and when asked how they knew they had made progress during the academic year, they indicated the teaching staff support and affirm their academic success. The supportive teachers who are trained and prepared to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum are associated with achievement motivation and outcomes.

Students who attend Genesis go through three steps to help them re-engage in the learning process. First, students must understand the importance of education. A lot of time is spent up front helping students understand their previous educational history. Over ninety percent of the students have never seen their transcript and/or discipline history prior to attending Genesis. Once the student has a clear understanding of their transcript and discipline history, Genesis walks them through the various options available to help them get caught up. Once a student sees there is hope, their attitude and motivation to learn is awaken.

Second, a transformation takes place. This transformation comes about when Genesis helps them find solutions to their academic, social and individual needs. Genesis has been able to move students from the first grade reading level to on grade level or post high school. Students who remain within the Genesis program for multiple years have demonstrated the greatest academic and social gains.

Third, a new beginning “attitude” emerges in the life of the student. By offering mental health counseling, a mentoring program and parent resources, these services serve as a protective factor for reducing student risk and fostering academic achievement. The mental health counseling depart provides individual and group therapy based on the assessment of the student need. The mentoring program provide caring adults from the community to help our students from high risk environments, many make steady progress towards completing their educational goals. With over seventy five percent of our students coming from single, female households, the parent resource program is designed to help provide the support that is sometimes missing in the home.

Genesis School will continue to provide preventative and intervention services to the social-emotional needs of students, while delivering instructional and curricular methods that focus on academic excellence.

Long-Term Success
Students leaving Genesis have been positively impacted so they may be successful in high school. The typical 5th grade student entering Genesis is:
  • 2-4 grade levels below expected proficiency in reading, math and science, often a non-reader and has failed one grade.
  • Averaged a daily attendance of less than 55% in previous school.
  • A child of a single parent who may live with large numbers of extended family, or in a household where at least one member of the household has been incarcerated.
  • Living at or below poverty level.
  • Suspended for non-attendance or misbehavior (some who attend, may have been out of school for as long as 180 days.)

Program Success Monitored By Genesis has developed a systematic approach to collect, evaluate and document student achievement – the Genkofa Learning Profile (GLP). Genesis also created and implemented a complementary front desk system (SDA). These systems provide continual monitoring of daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly progress of every student at Genesis. A 24-point index comprehensively assesses academic point-in-time achievement as well as behavioral development with progress trending. The system tracks education, attendance, social behavior and parent involvement. Student files are reviewed weekly by teacher care teams, and adjustments are made to the student’s schedule and routine. Ensuring the most successful learning experience we can provide, the GLP: addresses serious barriers to learning; meets the need for effective professional and parent training; makes curriculum/instruction student specific; and supports understanding of each child’s level of performance with academic and behavioral progress.
Examples of Program Success

In a weekly note from our principal on Aug. 26 to our teachers, this shows how we truly do track each individual student. He said: "Z'Jayonna Johnson first enrolled at Genesis in the fall of 2011 and tested more than 1 year behind in both math and reading. All departments of Genesis staff have been engaged in order to meet her academic, social and emotional needs. Despite missing the first 2 months of school last year, Z'jayonna continued to close the gap and in April she scored proficient in mathematics on the MAP and missed proficient in Communication Arts by only 4 points! With continued support, Z'jayonna is on a path to be able proficient in both subjects and eligible to enroll and be successful in the high performing high school of her family’s choosing next year."

Description Mental health services are essential to the Genesis students' success. Genesis provides comprehensive mental health/counseling services including: assessment/evaluation, individual/family/group counseling; behavioral intervention/management, and community/resource support referral. Groups focus on teen violence, drug prevention, and positive family/social relationships. The department is unique as a certified mental health provider service.

  • Behavioral Management: techniques to assist with addressing superficial problems, and facilitates return to the classroom.
Long-Term Success
Overcoming the following risk factors for successful completion of middle school and the development of the skills necessary to be responsible and self sufficient. Genesis students have experienced one or more of the following risk factors:
  • High school drop-out in family
  • School attendance/course/credit problems
  • Family income of below poverty level
  • Victim of abuse/violence, juvenile court involvement
  • Child of substance abuser
  • At risk of gang membership
  • Previously or presently receiving mental health services
Program Success Monitored By
The methods, outcomes, and measures are based on counseling intervention strategies that are provided to enhance the students’ overall academic and life skills as well as mental health. The data is collected daily on the SDA/GLP software. All written reports and counseling records are reviewed by the Jackson County Mental Heath Levy Program Monitor. The measures assess 3 core areas:
  • Academic: demonstrate 6-9 month average gain in all core subjects, as measured by the SAT-9. A Pretest is conducted in the fall; post testing is conducted in spring with the results in the individual files. 
  • Attendance: maintain an 85% average daily attendance rate. Attendance is monitored monthly. 
  • Mental Health: demonstrate, at a minimum, a 10% increase in Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF). A pre measure of functioning is included in the evaluation assessment; a post measure of functioning will be conducted at the end of the regular school year.
Examples of Program Success
The Department’s funding source, Jackson County Mental Health Fund, requires an audit twice yearly to ensure services are being provided and documented as stipulated in grant arrangement. Genesis has consistently met all requirements and targeted goals in meeting the counseling needs of students. Three major goals are identified each year. Students who receive counseling must:  
  1. Maintain an 85% attendance record
  2. Achieve, at a minimum, a 2.0 grade average
  3. Show a 10% improvement in their emotional/behavioral adjustment. 
Each year the department has met these goals. Most recently, the Chairman of the Mental Health Fund complimented the Genesis Counseling Department for taking the initiative to include technology in its documentation/record keeping system. All mental health social histories, individual/group therapy sessions are now systematically documented and filed, allowing for easy retrieval of counseling information and expedites quarterly billing.

Long-Term Success
Our goal with these programs is to provide academic support to students at all levels, whether it is intensive reading support or just homework help. Another goal is to provide enrichment activities that get kids excited about school. When they are excited about school, they are successful in the program. It also helps with retention of students.

Examples of Program Success Daequan Boyd enrolled in the second grade at Genesis last fall. Daequan had significant behavior issues that hindered learning and he was significantly behind in math and reading. From behavior interventions, to summer school, tutoring, counseling, Intervention, and relationship building, Daequan has become invested in the 4R’s and his learning and it is clearly paying off. He has already demonstrated more than 1 year of growth since the fall on all three NWEA tests: Reading, Language Arts and Math! He is on track to completely close the gap in all 3 subjects by the end of 3rd grade. Clear example of transformational change, he is now on a different academic and life trajectory.”
Description
This program is for students who come to us with literally no reading skills whatsovever. Third-graders who don't know their ABCs, eighth graders reading at 3rd grade level, etc. This is an intense one-on-one program that lasts the entire school year, and test results show these students increase more than 2 grade levels after completion.

Short-Term Success

Last year, a group of 11 students who initially tested lowest in their ability to comprehend and to decode (figure out new words), were given individual help. They received 60 sessions during the school year. The program for these students focused on development of auditory processing, which is a pre-cursor to efficient decoding, and the development of decoding skills so the students could begin to read classroom materials and make use of classroom instruction.

These 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students entered school with decoding skills (the ability to figure out new words) that ranged from grade equivalents 1.5 to 2.3. The gains ranged from .6 grade levels gain (this student began later in the year and did not have the complete program) to 7 grade levels gain. The average gain for all students was 2.8 grade levels gain.

Long-Term Success

  • The purpose of this program is to continue to improve the reading skills of the youth in Genesis School beyond that which can be achieved using normal reading instructional methods for students between grade levels 1-8.
  • This will be done by implementing a stronger auditory discrimination base (phonemic awareness) and providing the students with a process that will enable them to verify and verbalize their judgments.
  • Once this is in place, the goal is for the students to be able to integrate sensory feedback for self generating, self correcting performance in the reading task, which enables them to read at least 2 to 3 grade levels above their current level.
  • This is a very labor intensive project. Strategic Education clinicians work on a daily basis with students first developing processing for individual phonemes and then developing the processing to the level necessary for successful reading.
  • During this time auditory processing is developed; questioning and reasoning processes are developed; reading and comprehension skills are developed.

CEO Comments For 39 years, Genesis has been more than an academic setting. Genesis focuses on inner city, grades kindergarten through eighth; and addresses the individual, academic, and social needs of students who require alternative education to be responsible and self-sufficient learners. Most live within a 2-mile radius of the school which is located in the police precinct with the highest crime rate in the city. 100% of students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Due to the uncertainty that has characterized their lives, students are generally 2-4 grades below the expected level of academic achievement. Care teams meet weekly in strategy sessions that support each student’s individual development. Staff is empowered by the Genesis Learning Profile (GLP), a software program that assesses learning barriers and individual growth. GLP provides the principal and staff with relevant and comprehensive student data. Point-in-time academic achievement and social development measures are captured for each individual. Beyond revealing a student’s learning trend, data is used to improve course offerings, classroom instruction, teacher development, parent relationships and organizational goal setting. Moving beyond academic development, teachers conduct men’s and women’s groups weekly that allow students to focus on personal needs and concerns in the presence of caring adults. The counseling department offers each student access to licensed individual, family and group counseling. The counseling department is licensed to provide health services, and medication can be administrated by our school nurse. Striving to promote critical thinking and effective problem solving, teachers challenge students to utilize knowledge gained in a process that promotes self-understanding.
