Course Description
 More Details

This training is for individuals who will serve as mentors for students using Check & Connect. Check & Connect is an intervention used with K-12 students who show warning signs of disengagement with school and who are at risk of dropping out. At the core of Check & Connect is a trusting relationship between the student and a caring, trained mentor who both advocates for and challenges the student to keep education salient. Students are referred to Check & Connect when they show warning signs of disengaging from school, such as poor attendance, behavioral issues, and/or low grades.
 
Demonstrated outcomes of Check & Connect include:
  • decrease in truancy, tardies, behavior referrals, and dropout rates;
  • increase in attendance, persistence in school, credits accrued, and school completion; and
  • impact on literacy.
