Empowering Lancer Students and Teachers
School within a School
For students most at risk of not graduating, the school within a school, offers a focused program to provide the help needed to graduate and lead a successful life beyond high school. The program, to be launched in the fall of 2020, will be modeled after similar programs that have yielded good success across other area school districts, including the school La Follette’s current principal previously led. Your support will provide capital for startup costs including curriculum materials and aids, teacher certifications, experiential learning, and more. The goal is to implement the program, demonstrate its effectiveness and need for its continuation so the district will provide ongoing funding.
“School within a School is not a new concept but a proven concept that helps kids graduate. I have been part of a similar program and have seen firsthand the difference we can make in student’s lives. This needs to be a part of La Follette” – Amber Pardo, LHS Neighborhood Coordinator
