Check & Connect

Check & Connect is a program developed to engage 9th & 10th grade students in their education by assisting students and families with attendance, grades, and homework.

Through long-term sustained support, Check & Connect seeks to build a relationship with each student that will serve to connect them with their school and aid in their progress towards graduation.

Weekly conversations, tutoring, and homework help form the basis for a trusted bond between student and Check & Connect monitor. This enables the monitor to individually and definitely determine the interventions best suited to the students' needs.The monitor then works on behalf of the student as a mentor, tutor, problem-solver, listener, and advocate.

Check & Connect has been proven to significantly increase graduation rates, improve academic achievement, and better prepare our students for work, citizenship, and life-long learni
