For students who are identified as struggling with executive functioning (organizational skills, self advocacy, work completion, self-monitoring or regulating, tracking assignments, etc), we often support them in our program called STRIVE.
In this program, students work with a specific teacher each day to complete tasks such as organizing backpacks/folders/digital space, completing work, checking grades and creating goals based on those, drafting emails to teachers as needed, etc. Students work with a staff member and are guided to seek out academic support.
This program runs after school on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30-4:20 PM and is not a credit-bearing program. Ideally, students find success in the program and learn the skills necessary to transition out of the STRIVE model after a few weeks or months. Some exclusionary factories include poor attendance and discipline concerns. Click here to learn more about the STRIVE program.
For students who have general study halls or Learning Commons in their schedule, GUIDED STUDY may be an option which is a similar support that occurs during the school day, based on the intensity of the need. Click here to learn more about the GUIDED STUDY program.
