PowerPoint Presentation: Mike Zweber Executive Director Classroom Connect Program PowerPoint Presentation: Some background: The BIG picture… The Problem: a great need for quality education exists in the Dominican Republic (see then next few slides) The Solution: Doulos Discovery School is standing in the gap -Ezekiel 22:30 “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.” Our Need: Partner Schools in the US! We need our missionary staff and Dominican students to feel connected to quality, Christian staff and students in the US. PowerPoint Presentation: The Research.. Education Concerns in the Dominican Republic Only ½ of current elementary students will finish 4th grade Only 1/3 will complete the eighth grade Only 10 % graduate high school ( ) . PowerPoint Presentation: More data… A public school day only lasts 3 – 4 hours and classrooms are often crowded with as many as 50 students per instructor   Sadly, the Dominican Republic has the lowest student scores in Latin America for reading comprehension, mathematics, and science source: UNESCO’s SERCE PowerPoint Presentation: In our community in the mountains… In Jarabacoa , where we are located , there was a 25 % failure rate and a 10% dropout rate when Doulos began. One in three teenagers in Jarabacoa do not attend school . PowerPoint Presentation: The Solution: Doulos Discovery School! Doulos Discovery is a 501c3 non-profit Preschool - 12 th Grade Christian, Expeditionary Learning school located in the mountains of the DR PowerPoint Presentation: Our Vision at Doulos … To positively impact the Dominican Republic by being a resource for change in the community we serve and developing & equipping servant leaders. PowerPoint Presentation: There are a lot of schools in the world…What makes Doulos unique: Christian World View: Through daily devotions and weekly Bible studies, students learn to cultivate a love and passion for Christ as well as a habit for keeping Him first daily. Access: Our tuition rate is less than half of other private schools in Santiago and Santo Domingo. PLUS we feature a Sponsorship Program for half of our students. College/ Calling Prep focused: We have ACSI & Advanced Ed Accreditations using US Educational Standards..and an 8 hour school day. Staff: Our teachers are a mix of certified international missionaries and local hires. Expeditionary Learning Model: inquiry-based science or social studies investigations that last from three months to a full year Language & Learning: Our students become bi-literate, not just bilingual.

(Ex: 7 th grade with 7 th grade, seniors with seniors, etc..) (roughly 30-50 cents per month for each student) How does it work? PowerPoint Presentation: In return, The CVCA class would receive handwritten updates from the students in the connected class in the DR. Teachers from both schools would have the opportunity to collaborate to develop creative methods to bring the classes together in daily curriculum. How does it work?
