Assessing a Fee
Offered a $25 voucher for students who completed our EES math class (between PreAlgebra and ABE)

High no-show rate for EES students; BUT many were more interested in the computer experience and it was less about the math.

Model in Palo Alto about instilling value and less about assessing a fee

Secondary Pilot Results
10 participants <testing placement>
