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

Reflective Question

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.
