Retention and Academic Intuitive Support Experts (RAISE Team)

A Team Committed to Your Student’s Success

The Retention and Academic Intuitive Support Experts (RAISE) provides academic assistance, encouragement, and support to students and learning coaches when such support/assistance is requested or deemed necessary to achieve academic success in the virtual school environment.

We believe every student is unique. This means not only should instruction be unique but so should our support systems. All students and families deserve to have a support system in school that helps them strive for excellence, while developing the tools and skills to achieve their goals. The RAISE program prides itself on this philosophy, and the core belief of individualized support based on the unique needs of every family and student. The RAISE team meets families where they are now and helps them grow in accountability and academics. The RAISE team works with school staff, the learning coach, and students to holistically build the skills needed to move forward and support the students journey through our school.

What the Team Does

The RAISE team empowers students to overcome challenges—be they academic, social, emotional, medical, or otherwise—to succeed in school and beyond. The RAISE team is here to help support students and families experiencing unique challenges including homelessness, illness, low progress, truancy, etc. We also recognized some families face other types of challenges in which extra support can make all the difference, including organizing their students’ workflow, and schooling day-to-day. This holistic approach includes early intervention, support services, and linking families to school and community-based resources. RAISE members and teachers work with families to provide the extra help needed to enable students to stay motivated and on track.
