Ohio Department of Education has partnered with Graduation Alliance to provide an extra layer of support for K-12 students and their families to boost school engagement and academic success. 

Students who choose to participate in the program will be assigned an Academic Success Coach who will answer questions, connect them with resources, and develop a plan to help the student stay on track.

Coaches reach out to students by phone, email, text message, and more to provide support such as:

  • Guidance on technical and teacher access

  • Encouragement and motivation to help students stay on track with their studies 

  • Organization and study tips

  • Educational resources and exercises to help strengthen reading and math skills

  • Referrals to local nonprofit organizations that can provide social-emotional support

“I’m so thankful to have someone to turn to to help my kids overcome their problem areas and help them be their best. I am grateful to have access to such a program and have someone like my student’s Academic Success Coach as a new resource for academic success!”

– ENGAGE parent

“The ENGAGE program has helped me become a better student. My Academic Success Coach has helped me become more motivated and excited about learning. They are extremely helpful and always want to know other ways they can help. They are always encouraging me to do better than yesterday! I am extremely grateful I have the help from this program!”

 — ENGAGE student

“I couldn't ask for better dedication and support for my daughter. Our Academic Success Coach is a blessing and has incredible energy. I love how she got my daughter more out of her shell, talking more (finding her voice to speak up more). Thanks to our coach and this program, my daughter loves school and learning again. This program is the best thing that could ever happen for my daughter and me!”

 — ENGAGE parent

“The program was engaging, responsive, and helpful. The Academic Success Coach we worked with was very helpful and knowledgeable in all of my child's academic courses, which were advanced. My daughter and I are looking forward to working with the program again next year.”
