Written by Kathleen Tootle on . Posted in Uncategorized

On August 22, 2017 both Coastal GLRS and Southeast GLRS participated in a professional development to learn about the intervention Check & Connect.  Check & Connect is an intervention used with grades K-12 and is designed for students who display warning signs of disengagement with school and in return become students at risk for dropping out.  This workshop was introduced to Districts 14 and 15 to assist with providing evidence based interventions as part of the state SSIP initiative.
