Our focus is on getting all students to graduation to receive their diploma from White Swan High School. This process starts at the middle school and continues until the graduation ceremony. To facilitate this process, my staff and I are committed to providing your students with a safe learning environment and the support they will need to be successful. We are also committed to “Continuous Student Learning” by educating all students, providing them with the tools they’ll need for school and in life.
Please see http://www.k12.wa.us/GraduationRequirements/default.aspx for Washington State graduation requirements.
Our schools continue to have staff available to work individually with students to support academic, career and personal/social needs as students work toward attaining their diploma. As part of the High School Graduation Initiative, we have in place an academic specialist and a graduation coach to support student needs. This is in addition to our counseling staff who are committed to helping your student be successful in school and plan for their future whether it be post-secondary education or a career.
Crew, a weekly advisory, is an integral part of our student support system where staff members are teamed with students to build a relationship of caring and support. The mission of Crew is:
To provide all students with a meaningful relationship with a staff member whose goal is to keep them in school and on track to graduation and beyond
To improve school culture and climate by engaging in common protocols and rituals and building bonds with peers
To support all students with goal setting, reflection and gathering evidence of learning
It is important that our students, with guidance from their families, make choices that positively affect their education. They need to be in school every day, on time, ready to learn.
I welcome a partnership with the community in promoting “Continuous Student Learning”. Please contact me to discuss successes and challenges relating to your student’s education. We, together, can work on next steps to ensure your student’s success now and in the future.
