The key goals were to build professional capacity, provide adults the opportunity to build relationships with students, provide students with a sense of belonging through universities, and provide a 7 period day where students are offered additional support or an additional elective course option. Through the Cycle of Continuous Improvement, we have examined key indicators aligned with outcomes and will be making a recommendation to discontinue this initiative.
