DRAFT: Delta High School Action Plan

2009-2010 SCHOOL YEAR

Systems of Student Support 

Our Vision for Systems of Student Support: At Delta High School, a STEM-focused public high school, everyone matters. Nothing—and no one—is taken for granted. We believe that all students are capable of learning, and we provide a system of student support that engages all learners. There is a growing body of evidence that supports a need for greater academic and social support to enable students at all high schools to graduate and enroll in college at a higher rate. The strategies we have designed for building and sustaining these support mechanisms hope to ensure that all students are college and work-force ready upon graduation from Delta High School.
