The Village at Concordia University partners with Faubion School teachers, parents, and students. In 2012, Concordia offered two sections of a class that support the Village focus. In these classes, Concordia students received coaching instruction and then tutoring for nine weeks of their semester. During the afternoon section, parents and teachers gave permission for tutors to work with their struggling 6th graders. During the evening section, parents and families of struggling K – 8th grade readers brought their children to the Concordia University Library for tutorial coaching. The Village at Concordia is looking forward to targeting new ways to respond to struggling middle school students (6 – 8).
