Check & Connect

What is Check & Connect?
Check & Connect is an evidence-based mentoring intervention for K-12 students who show warning signs of disengagement with school and who are at risk of dropping out. At the core of Check & Connect (C&C) is a trusting relationship between the student and a caring mentor.

Why Check & Connect?
Student outcomes include:

  • Increase in attendance, persistence in school, credit accrual, and school completion rates.   
  • Decrease in truancy, tardies, behavior referrals and dropout rates.
