This staff member will meet with each student and family prior to the start of school each year and about every 6 weeks to review progress and adjust plans. Although we frequently use electronic communication (email, phone, text), face-to-face meetings with students, parents, and staff are a regular expectation. Student success is largely dependent upon engaged family members.
