Re-Engaging Students for a Successful School Year
During Summer 2017, Long Island City High School Attendance & Family Success Coordinator Kevon Webb embarked on home visits. He targeted new, incoming freshmen, as well as current students with chronic absences. During Mr. Webb’s visits, he provided families with a brief overview of the average school day in the life of a student. He also emphasized the importance of beginning the school year with strong attendance. For current students, he helped families review their child’s attendance data from previous years.
At the end of each visit, Mr. Webb left families armed with information about the school’s many programs, small learning communities, key contacts for parents, and most importantly confidence that students will come to school on time and attend all classes each day.
The Zone 126 office at Long Island City High School also provides a plethora of resources. Room 540 makes the Zone 126 team accessible to all students. The team ensures the office is a safe haven, a place students can come if they need someone to talk to and converse with during lunch and after school. In building trust, the Zone 126 team builds relationships with students to connect them to the in-school and outside of school resources to encourage academic and socioemotional success.
