What does the weekly “Connect” meeting look and sound like?
About the “Connect” Meeting
The “Connect” meeting is the basic Check & Connect intervention. The “Connect” meeting is a structured but not scripted conversation between the mentor and the student. All students who participate in C&C receive this intervention weekly.
At Least Weekly:
- Share “Check” Data
- Provide feedback
At Least Monthly:
- Discuss the importance of school
- Problem-solve WITH the student as problems arise
A consistent structure provides a routine for students and allows them to develop expectations, which helps them feel connected to school, learning, and their mentor.
