Action Team 2.1

The opportunity for Action Team Two is to integrate a standardized system that connects 6th-12th grade students from local school districts to local community-based mentoring services. Action Team Two kicked off their work in August of 2017. The team is exploring the current system of referring students to mentoring services and working on identifying gaps and areas that could be improved.

Achieve Brown County has worked with the community and organizations, to build equity, close this gap and, ensure all students are supported and get what they need to succeed. The “Graduation Task Force” was born out of Action Team Two’s efforts to bring together local school districts and mentoring organizations to achieve one goal: 100% High School Graduation Rate in Brown County. In order to achieve this goal the team has designed a system to detect, determine, and deliver mentoring supports for those students most at risk of dropping out of school in grades 6th through 12th.
