Academic Interventions

Academic Interventions

Academic Interventions programs address a central issue many students struggle with: attendance. These programs intervene by addressing the root causes of a student's absences from school by providing resources during and outside of the school day. By working with students and their families, these United Way-funded programs are creating the foundation for a bright future, and creating a path to high school graduation.
