Title:Georgia Graduation Coach Initiative
Source:http://gadoe.org/tss_school_improve.aspx?PageRe...
Date: 
Organization:Georgia Department of Education
Short Description:The High School Graduation Coach initiative, championed by Governor Sonny Perdue during the 2006 legislative session, allows each of Georgia’s high schools and middle schools to employ a coach. This is the first program of its kind to be implemented statewide. The coach’s primary responsibility is to identify at-risk students and help them succeed in school by keeping them on track academically before they consider dropping out.
Annotation:The High School Graduation Coach initiative, championed by Governor Sonny Perdue during the 2006 legislative session, allows each of Georgia’s high schools and middle schools to employ a coach. This is the first program of its kind to be implemented statewide. The coach’s primary responsibility is to identify at-risk students and help them succeed in school by keeping them on track academically before they consider dropping out. The coaches identify, recruit and engage parents and concerned adults, organizations and government agencies to serve in a variety of ancillary roles. The Georgia Department of Education and Communities In Schools provides training, support, and technical assistance.
