Each Site Coordinator conducts an annual needs assessment to determine what programs and services would best benefit their school. Key initiatives include attendance, success motivation, student leadership, life skills, workforce preparation, career exploration, college access and basic needs such as food, clothing, medical, dental and vision support.
We provide students with the basic needs to be able to get to school, in class and ready to succeed. We partner with local non-profits, businesses and the community to provide things like food, school supplies, school appropriate clothing, Medical, Dental and Vision support to our students.
Our Site Coordinators work one-on-one with students providing services and encouragement to help them reach their goals, achieve academically and eventually earn a high school diploma.
Chronic absence (missing 10% or more of school days, excused or not) presents academic challenges that can result in failing subjects and even dropping out of high school. Many of our Site Coordinators serve on Attendance committees at their schools as well as monitor their caseload students’ attendance.
The Walton Works Initiative recognizes the workforce challenges in our community and is a partnership among our school systems, Student Success Alliance, Development Authority of Walton County and other organizations to strengthen our local workforce through a variety of programs (Industry Tours, Soft Skills Workshops and Local Business Speakers).
