The COVID-19 pandemic created a level and intensity of student need that many current school efforts aren’t designed to meet. Teachers are working harder than ever before to help their students succeed, but they shouldn’t have to do this work alone.
Join NEA and the GRAD Partnership to learn about student success systems, a strategy that brings together entire school communities to support the progress and well-being of all students. By focusing on relationships, actionable data, and evidence-based practices, student success systems help educators and communities build a sense of belonging and school connectedness among students, address school-wide achievement patterns, and meet individual student needs.
Hear from practitioners at Manzano High School and district personnel in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who implemented a student success system and saw real benefits for students, teachers, and the entire school community They will share how they use real time, actionable date related to high school graduation and post-secondary readiness. Learn how student success systems complement teachers’ efforts to help students succeed by emphasizing school wide strategies and community support.
