Check and Connect

What does Check & Connect do?

Our engagement and academic support seeks to form the basis for a trusted bond between the student and the larger MPS community. Check & Connect works on behalf of the student as a mentor, tutor, problem-solver, listener, and case advocate.

  • Check & Connect offers supplemental support to 9th & 10th graders!

Check & Connect seeks to build relationships with students primarily struggling with attendance and staying on track to graduate.
Data can only tell us so much about a student so Check & Connect always welcomes personal recommendations from any Roosevelt staff for high needs students
