Spring ISD administrators and teachers will be reaching out to families on Saturday Nov. 14 to encourage students who are struggling with attendance and engagement to make a commitment to fully participate in remote learning or return to in-person school.
The Success Walk is part of the district’s EVERYday Counts, Attendance Matters campaign, an ongoing effort to encourage all students to be in school each day or to participate in online learning. Specifically, volunteers will be out in the neighborhoods around Spring ISD schools from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to help students address any of the obstacles that may be hindering their success.
“This has been a challenging year so we want all of our families to know we’re available to help,” said Superintendent Dr. Rodney E. Watson. “It’s very important that all of our students are engaged with instruction every day, whether it’s online or in-person, and we’re going to be knocking on doors to get the word out.”
Volunteers from all 40 of the district’s schools will be focusing on those students who are struggling with regular attendance or failing classes. The priority will be to reach out to seniors who may be at risk of not graduating and then target other students who need help getting back on track.
District administrators and campus leaders emphasize that there is still time for students to improve and be successful, especially with the many supports in place, including counseling, tutorials and credit recovery programs.
“No student should feel like it’s too late or too difficult to turn things around,” Watson said. “We’re ready to partner with our families to ensure every student who needs help, gets it.”
