TARGET AUDIENCE: High School Teachers, Counselors and Instructional Coaches

For many High School students, the path to successful graduation is not a linear one. The Supporting High School Completion: A Tool Kit for Success resource is a support designed for schools working with students at risk of not completing High School.

With tools and processes to support your work, the Tool Kit centers on 4 guiding questions:

  1. Empowerment: Can the student’s choice to stay be empowered? How?
  2. Supported Exit: How can the student be continually supported if an exit from high school is necessary?
  3. Reconnection: What steps will help reconnect to the student if they have exited?
  4. Reentry and/or Continued Engagement: What is the best way to support successful reentry and continued engagement?


Join this 45 minute introductory webinar to receive an overview of the Tool Kit, and to learn how the processes and tools within will assist learning teams in considering and leveraging available resources to remove barriers towards High School completion for vulnerable youth.
