WHY PATHWAYS TO POTENTIAL
Pathways works to improve attendance, connect families and build partnerships. Our success coaches work in the schools to remove barriers to attendance early on before they result in truancy and negatively impact learning. Success coaches are then better equipped to connect families when barriers come up that impact attendance by quickly forging relationships with parents -- forming collaboration to show everyone is working together. Through these connections, success coaches, community school coordinators and schools have seen an increase in parental involvement. Lastly (although this is not where we end our involvement with the students, families and schools), DHS partners with schools, bringing a network of businesses, faith-based organizations and community partners to the table to strategize on how to best help students and families. These partnerships ultimately build and strengthen the community as a whole.
