Student Advocate Program

What is a Student Advocate?

Student Advocates are focused on engaging students to improve attendance, support a path toward academic success, and build meaningful and healthy relationships. The Student Advocate serves as the liaison between the student and resources to ensure student success. Advocates develop and manage interventions such as home visits, outreach phone calls, and addressing individual student barriers to improve attendance, reduce truancy, and re-engage students who are out of school.


 

Tiered Interventions

 

STUDENT INTAKE FORMS: Advocates conduct individual intake forms with all students. The purpose is to identify barriers, compile data, and deepen our understanding of our students' needs.

STUDENT CHECK INS: Student Advocates conduct student check-ins with their caseload throughout the school year. Every student will have a student-check in at least twice a quarter.

FAMILY COMMUNICATION: Student Advocates serve as a liaison between the school and the families of CHSC students. Advocates are consistently contacting families through phone calls, text messages, e-mails, staffings, mailed letters, home visits, family meetings, and family events.

AGREEMENTS: Student Advocates facilitate agreements, asset-based collaborative contracts.

HOME VISITS: Student Advocates conduct home visits for every student during the summer and throughout the year.

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION: Student Advocates support the facilitation of New Student Orientation at the start of each quarter for new students enrolling at Colorado High School Charter.
