Check & Connect is a program developed to engage students in their education.

Through long-term sustained support, Check & Connect seeks to build a relationship with each student that will serve to connect them with their school community and take pride in learning.
Weekly conversations, tutoring and homework help form the basis for a trusted bond between the student and the Check & Connect Monitor. This enables the Monitor to individually and definitively determine the supports best suited to the students’ needs. The Monitor then works on behalf of the student as a mentor, tutor, problem-solver, listener and case advocate. Check & Connect works across the spheres of home, school, and community.
