"Check & Connect" - Billings


February 12-13, 2018 (9:00AM to 4:30PM)

Check & Connect is a comprehensive Tier 2 and/or 3 intervention designed to enhance student engagement at school and with learning for marginalized, disengaged students in grades K-12, through relationship building, problem solving and persistence. Signs of disengagement can include poor attendance, tardies, poor grades, non-involvement in class, extracurricular activities, etc. It is a research based intervention for dropout prevention.This structured mentoring program where the adult mentor meets with the student weekly for about a half hour.  At this meeting, the mentor has brought gathered data (grades, attendance, tardies, office discipline referrals) and discusses them with the student.  The mentor teaches needed skills such as goal setting, problem solving, and/or organization, depending on the student’s need.  The idea is to build needed skills for the student to be successful in whatever they choose.  The mentor connects with family so they can also become engaged in the child’s learning.
