SCHS Student Success Program

Developing a Successful At-Risk Team while following a


Case Management Model

mission statement
Mission Statement
  • All students deserve an ADVOCATE. We don’t give up- even if they do.

Teachers have to recognize that everybody hasweaknesses. Create a culture where teachers realize they have done everything they can and are willing to allowsomeone else to help.

Spartan Journey to Success
  • Corrupt Data…realized we must collect our own to have accurate information.
  • The data then became students with faces.
  • Team became unconditionally invested in each student and his/hersuccess and future.
  • Target Group:
    • McKinney Vento/ Homeless, Substance Abusers, Chronic attendance issues, Crisis Issues, students with “baggage” (DSS, Fire, Family Death), Anecdotal

Program Fundmentals
  • Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
    • If student’s basic needs aren’t being met then he/shewill not be invested in school success.
  • Valued Stakeholders
    • Teachers are where the “rubber meets the road…first line of defense.
    • Students and their family/support systems (where they exist)
    • Administration impacts the culture of the school. Shift in thinking that requires and allows staff to be creative and “think outside the box” in order to achieve student success.

Mastery vsSeat-Time

    • Certain situations will prevent seat-time for some students but ultimately mastery is the goal.
  • Timely Communication Regarding Grades and Attendance.
    • Necessary for daily tracking.

Seminar Class

    • Used for both freshmen and upperclassmen for additional case management.
    • Should be targeted, not just a study hall.
    • Teachers are hand-picked and can identify with at-risk kids. They can also motivate and develop a mutual respect for them.
    • Access to all grades and missing assignments so they can assist them in getting organized and caught up.
    • Teacher must have equity with other staff.

team tools
Team Tools
  • Visuals/ Boards
    • They are labor intensive but always updated and available at a quick glance.
    • They are re-ranked every 10 days and the history is recorded.
    • They serve as a daily guide as to who needs what, based on current attendance and grade for that day.

Weekly Team Meetings to Review All Students Who are on the Boards.

    • Discuss current/immediate obstacles or crisis issues for students
    • Review grades and attendance
    • Identify any classroom issues that need to be addressed
    • Assist student in developing a success plan

Technology Tools

    • Allow for a comprehensive glimpse of the students’ past and present grades, attendance, discipline, etc.
    • Power School
    • Student Records
    • Cell Phones…text students daily if they are not in school to show them we care and are not giving up on them.

Action Tools

    • Home visits by administration, social worker, nurse, teachers and other team members...creates the buy-in so that administration can talk to teachers about student situations.
    • Communication
    • Conferencing (options)

Seminar classes…intervention for all grades

    • Hand scheduling for unique situations when the correct teacher-student pairing is necessary.
    • Requires extra time from Data Manager and counselors; but very effective if a student has “checked out” due to a negative teacher-student relationship.

Grad Point/ Credit Recovery

    • Essential for flexibility (lost credit, scheduling)
    • The “right” teacher to motivate and assist kids while they are working through modules.

Administrative Actions

    • Modifications...flexibility for schedule changes
    • Variety of incentives to finish strong
      • Prom attendance is a privilege
      • Marching at graduation is a privilege
      • Minimum Credit Diploma (know your county’s policy)
      • Opportunity to early graduate for certain circumstances
essentials for program success
Essentials for Program Success
  • Must create buy-infrom all stake holders
  • Must have buy-in from Superintendent, High School Director and School Board.
  • Daily communication from teachers, students and parents.
  • Understanding the dynamics of a successful team.
  • Affirmation to the student for years of success up to this point.

Connection is necessary for developing

relationships and mutual respect.
