Engaging Students in On-Track Conversations

Tool Set C

Success Teams are responsible for creating multiple opportunities to engage students in On-Track converseations. These opportunities can include school-wide events and Freshman Seminar or Advisory programs. Tool Set C provides examples on how one NCS partner school approached student enegagement around On-Track goals.

Success Teams can use Tool Set C to generate their own ideas for the work. It is important for teams to distribute activities and responsibilities among team members to avoid burnout. Success Team conversations focused on supporting incoming freshmen should happen in the spring so the team is ready to maximize opportunities, such as freshman orientation, later in the summer to engage students.
