Academic Achievement & School Leadership
Strand 1: Academic Achievement & Leadership The purpose of this program is to show that Athletic Academic Support Program have an affect on academic achievement and is designed to give students the opportunity to participate in activities that enhance their classroom achievement.
Brief Program Description
The primary focus and design of the program is to have the student athlete who has participated in the school's athletic academic support program be prepared and equipped to enroll in college, enlist in the military, or be gainfully employed after high school; simply known as the 3E's.
In society so many student athletes are labeled as at-risk students because most see them as just athletes. Positive relationships between student athletes and stakeholders can assist these students in reaching their dreams and facilitate positive academic outcomes. This presentation will illustrate the successful components of a high school athletic "5th Quarter" program for all student athletes. The various support will include discussions on goal setting, academic achievement, graduation requirements, post secondary planning, and other scholastic expectations that the student may not be previe to. An environment that fosters positive collaborations between students and staff will nurture these at-risk student athletes in ways that will improve academic, behavioral and 5th quarter outcomes. These interventions work to hold students accountable to high levels of learning and encourage a growth mindset while providing support solely based on the student's needs. Specialized interventions that will be canvassed are: Study Hall, Peer Tutoring, Grade Checks, Local Job Agencies, US Armed Forces, College Admission Offices, and Administrative Coaching.
