What is Check & Connect?
Check & Connect is a model of ongoing, systematic intervention and support to promote students’ engagement at school and with learning. Each student participating in Check & Connect is assigned a mentor. Check & Connect mentors seek to build long-term, sustained relationships with participating students that will connect them with their school and help them make academic progress.
