  • Consulting and collaborating with school staff and other community stakeholders to provide lessons and resources to meet the developmental needs of students
  • Exposing students to career and post-secondary options
  • Assisting students with transitions to elementary, middle, high school, and post-secondary options
  • Complete the requirements of the BRIDGE Law with students beginning in 6th grade
  • Reviewing academic records to include but not limited to report cards, transcripts, test scores, etc.
