Dean of students values Check & Connect's focus on relationships


"Relationships are so critical. When students talk about the best part of their high school experience, it’s always those couple of teachers they had that great relationship with that changed their lives, that made such a difference. With Check & Connect, it’s such a big part of their purpose to make that relationship and have that relationship work. I know working in an urban school, I could not be effective if I don’t build relationships with students. It’s powerful to them, they’re hungry for more caring adults in their lives, and Check & Connect brings that into place."
