Socorro Independent School District administrators, principals, assistant principals, counselors, and other staff members are gearing up to walk SISD neighborhoods and encourage students who have left school to return to the district during the third annual Walk for Success on Sept. 17.
Team SISD conducted a call-out day on Aug. 27 to begin the outreach to students who have not returned to school this year. During the call-out, high school principals and counselors personally called students to invite them back.As a result of the call-out, 13 students already have returned and re-enrolled in Team SISD schools.
In addition, as a result of the last two Team SISD Walk for Success events in 2014 and 2015, 26 students returned to school and graduated from high school.
The 2016 Walk for Success is the next step and a Team SISD effort to bring back more students who have left school. The Walk for Success call-out and walk events are part of Team SISD’s commitment to ensure every student succeeds and to provide them with endless opportunities for a lucrative future in college, careers and life.
The students who are reached during the walk will be given information about how to re-enroll and the support services that they will receive to help them continue their educational journey to earn their diploma.
