Signing in at the School Office with Raptor
It is always a good idea to sign in at the school using the school district's Raptor system. When you give your driver's license to the office personnel and they sign you in, it officially records your visit at the school and also serves as a safety mechanism should there be an issue and they needed to know who all was on campus at any given time.
What if Your Mentee is a No-Show for a Session?
Students in the Take Stock in Children program sign a contract indicating, among many things, that they will meet regularly with their mentor. Of course we all know that sometimes life happens and an emergency situation might prevent them from contacting you in advance, but if this happens more than once it really should be addressed by our office. Students need to keep their end of the bargain. You can simply reach out to our Mentor Coordinator, Gina Granger, and let her know the situation or you could also enter a mentor session log with zero (0) minutes with comments regarding the missed session to help us stay on top of it.
Did You Know?
All logged mentor sessions are reported to the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) which has standards our program must meet, but it is especially important that mentor sessions are timely logged for our Seniors because it is needed for activation of their scholarship.
