Expelled and At Risk Student Services (EARSS) Programs Celebrate Success in Weld RE-J3 and San Luis Valley BOCES Districts!

Generation Schools Network has been supporting San Luis Valley BOCES Districts and the Weld RE-J3 District in Keenesburg, CO in the implementation of their Expelled & At-risk Student Services Grant. Using the evidence-based strategy of case management, successes are being realized in keeping students in school and working toward successful completion. Below are two testimonials of how the program is positively impact students and families.

One of our students and their family that has been provided support through the EARSS grant has been an incredible cheerleader for this work. The mother also happens to be a district employee. She is a single mom and has struggled to keep her child engaged and before this year, the mother reported feeling very helpless. Mom has reached out several times to her child's Advocate to let her know how appreciative she is of the program. The mother also wrote a testimonial letter to our Board of Education to let them know how much she has valued the support.
- Family Success Story, Weld RE-3J Student Advocacy Program

A student who was identified [for the program] had anxiety preventing him from attending school regularly, it got to the point last year where family decided to pull him from school. I [Advocate] made the referral to Behavioral Health for counseling services and recommend they stay committed during the summer. He came back this year as a new person. He no longer had the fears he used to have. He also had a lot of new coping strategies that teachers supported. He still struggled to get to school on time the first semester and had a lot of tardies, but he was there! He showed up everyday and tried his best. He also participated in a weekly SEL group with other classmates where he was able to build relationships and build his confidence back up.
