2015 Check & Connect Conference: Celebrating 25 Years of Student Engagement

In conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education, Check & Connect was established in 1990 with the goal of implementing comprehensive interventions designed to enhance student engagement for marginalized, disengaged students in grades K-12. We’ve seen great success in the 25 years since—compared to control groups, many more students who received the Check & Connect intervention stayed in school and were, by ninth grade, on track to graduate within five years.

We invite both professionals implementing the Check & Connect model and those interested in learning more about it to the first Check & Connect national conference. Experts in the field will share lessons learned, and you’ll have the opportunity to gain tools to support at-risk students in reaching their goals.

More than 35 researchers, practitioners and trainers will share their knowledge regarding student engagement and the Check & Connect program. Speakers include:

When: October 7-8, 2015
