What is Hornet DEPOT?
Hornet DEPOT is an after-school program federally funded by the Texas COVID Learning Acceleration Supports (TCLAS) competitive grant. The grant program operates at Azle ISD elementary campuses through the end of the 2023-24 school year and serves students in grades 3-6.
View Hornet Depot Registration Flyer.
Hornet DEPOT will operate four days per week for three hours per day (after the regular school day ends) for a minimum of 90 days per school year.
Each student participating in the grant-funded after-school program will attend at least three days per week.
The after-school program will maintain a program staff-to-student ratio of 1:15 or lower. (The tutoring ratio will be 1:4.)
All students will be provided with a daily snack, high-impact tutoring in math and/or reading, and a dedicated physical space that is safe, properly equipped, and easily accessible for students.
The research-based tutoring platform used for math intervention is Zearn. (This product is required by TEA.)
All tutors receive professional development laser-focused on using Zearn to deliver high-impact tutoring in a small group setting.
For reading, all tutors receive student-specific feedback from the campus teachers and interventionists to tailor the tutoring experience to their individual needs.
According to TEA, "High-impact tutoring leads to substantial learning gains for students' classroom experiences.”
