College Success Coaching

Each Take Stock in Children Scholar is assigned a staff member “College Success Coach” to meet with quarterly at school. The College Success Coach works as a case manager and tracks students’ progress to ensure compliance with program standards. The Coach monitors academics, attendance, behavior, graduation requirements, and ensures that students are meeting with their mentors weekly. When a scholar is non-compliant with any program standards, his or her status will drop and the probation process begins. See chart below for status update ladder.

The College Success Coach holds an intervention meeting with any Take Stock in Children Scholar who is on warning or probation. Phone calls are made to all parents and mentors to notify them of the status change, as well as letters are sent to their homes. See chart below describing levels of intervention.
