Crittenton Community School, 1418 E. Broad St., is a charter school that operates under the umbrella of Directions for Youth & Families, with funding from the Ohio Education Association and Columbus City Schools, said Directions CEO Steve Votaw , who attended the jazz outing. "It's a school for children struggling within the traditional setting," he said. The school uses a more individualized approach and small-group intervention in trying to stop middle school students from dropping out and to help them overcome below-grade performance from their early years. Directions provides counseling. About 75 percent of the school's student enter reading at or below fourth-grade level and about 70 have been held back to repeat a grade one or more times, Votaw said.
