Free Academic Success Coaching for Students
We’re excited to make you aware of a free program, ENGAGE Virginia, that will provide students with an extra layer of academic support this school year. The Virginia Department of Education has partnered with Graduation Alliance to provide support for students and their families to boost school engagement and academic success during the school year, and GCPS has elected to take advantage of this partnership opportunity.
Students who choose to participate in the program will be assigned an Academic Success Coach who will answer questions, connect them with resources, and develop a plan to help them stay on track and engaged with their schooling. The coach will reach out by telephone, email, text message, and more to provide support such as:
Encouragement and motivation to help them stay on track with their studies
Organization and study tips
Technical support or assistance connecting with teachers
Educational resources and exercises to help strengthen reading and math skills
Referrals to local agencies and organizations that can provide social-emotional support
For some students, their school attendance and/or academic performance may indicate a potential need for more urgent intervention. These students may be contacted directly by a representative from Graduation Alliance.
