The Graduation coach assists students who need additional support to graduate with their cohort.
 
Together, the student and the Graduation Coach, identify the various barriers preventing them from graduating and thru collaboration, develop a plan of action that will help keep them in school and move forward to graduating. Each plan will involve setting interventions that will help overcome these barriers and allow the student to be successful.

The Graduation Coach works closely with campus support such as the Principal, Assistant Principals, counselors, teachers, campus social worker, Child Study Team to help create an effective system that promotes parental involvement. Parents/guardians will have access to campus support they need while on campus. Students and parents/guardians will have access to support, resources, and alternative placement options to help their student on their pathway toward graduation.
