For the past two years, PSCCN has partnered with Franklin Pierce and Bethel School Districts as a part of NCAN’s To and Through Advising Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to improve the outcomes for students by enhancing postsecondary advising, increasing access to financial aid, combating summer melt, and utilizing data-informed practices. We received access to technical assistance, communities of practices, data coaches, and best practices models. We are pleased to share some of the resources with you today and in our future PSCCN convenings and support. This is especially pertinent amidst our current context in which many of us are seeking out new strategies to target students who are most impacted by the current health crisis.
Franklin Pierce and Bethel School District have worked hard to implement new practices to support their student’s postsecondary goals with strategies such as revising the advisory curriculum, implementing exit surveys, including financial aid in their student tracking systems, and more. We thank them for their leadership in spearheading this work in our region and look forward to continued growth around these innovative practices.
