Feedback form is now closed.
Check & Connect (C&C) is a Tier 2/3 intervention used with K-12 students who demonstrate warning signs of disengagement within school socially and academically, and who are at risk of dropping out. At the core of Check & Connect is a trusting relationship between the student and a caring, trained, school-based mentor who both advocates for and challenges the student to keep education salient. Iowa has a strong cadre of trainers throughout the state. The presenter will share an overview of C&C, district implementation data, and processes from within our state. This session will help schools/districts identify readiness indicators and integration within MTSS.
