Check & Connect 

Helping The Community

Check and Connect is a dropout prevention program based on the idea that students need help meeting their academic goals.  The program uses mentors to address, deeply and continuously, a student’s performance and record and to arrange services that will help the student succeed.  The Check and Connect program’s interventions yield the following outcomes: increases in attendance, persistence in school, accrual of credits and school completion rates with decreases in truancy, tardiness, behavioral referrals, and dropout rates.
