Right supports to the right kids at the right time
After a decade of working to raise our graduation rate, we have found that the most effective way to make sure students succeed comes from getting students that extra help. While the school district is working to do their best to support students academically, 90% by 2020 has come together to give support outside of the classroom.
Through our Community Plus Schools, we work with teachers and student's families to find what support they can use. Is a student behind in math? We can get them tutoring. Do they need daycare for a younger sibling? We can help.
With our Back On Track initiative, we have partnered with the Anchorage School District, AT&T and Covenant House Alaska to help high at-risk students receive their high school diploma. These students get more one on one time with teachers and TAs, and work with a case manager to help them with their other needs like housing, food, medical, or counseling. Students are able to focus on school and not worry about their basic needs.
