Graduation Completion Index (GCI)
  • Would your Graduation and Completion Index
    improve if your students were supported by the
    Student Assistance Programming (SAP) process?

Research says
  • Students involved in SAP
  • Increased their attendance by 70 percent
  • Improved their promotion or graduation rates by
    68 percent
  • Decreased their discipline problems by 60 percent
  • (Fertman, Helper, Tarasevich, 2003, Retrospective
    Analysis of the Pennsylvania Student Assistance
    Program Outcome Data Implications for Practice
    and Research- unpublished)

11
How can you do this at your school?
  • Implement a SAP team
  • And no, you do not need to make a new team to do
    this modify an existing team and its role!

School-based infrastructure of proven practices
that brings help to students, families, schools
and communities An integrated system of
supports, including prevention, early
intervention and services that address barriers

Getting Started A Team Approach
  • Ideally, SAP Teams exist at division and school
    levels
  • Large and small school teams at the school level
    are both effective
  • The team has objectives at each tiered level
  • Team members have different, yet complementary
    roles
  • School meetings are held regularly to review
    cases
  • Mutual support helps school team members handle
    the stress of referrals and case management

18
Data What to use and how to use it
  • Immediately Available
  • Attendance
  • Discipline, Crime and Violence
  • SOL results and benchmarks
  • Graduation and Completion Index List
  • By Sub-groups

The Early Identification Process
  • Assistance for a student may start with a
    referral from within the school, from data that
    flags the student or from a community stakeholder
  • Train faculty to watch and listen for the signs
    of student problems and how to refer to the SAP
    Team
  • A students teachers may consult with the SAP
    Team
  • The SAP Team works with students and their
    parents
  • The importance of confidentiality never changes
