Graduation: Against All Odds
The Vision
The Values
OKWU M.Ed. Portfolio Presentation
To provide educational services to homeless and highly mobile students in order to remove barriers, provide opportunities, and promote academic success, improving the graduation and retention rate of high school seniors in the process.
Where I want to go...
To help achieve this mission, BPS Homeless Services program will work with Bartlesville High School to increase the graduation and retention rate of homeless and independent high school students in grades 11-12.
MISSION: To distinguish Bartlesville Public Schools as the best in the state in academics, staffing, technology, facilities, and student activities.
-MENTORS: We will develop a mentor program which will provide academic and emotional support through the development of a relationship with a responsible community member.
-CURRICULUM: We will improve the curriculum and grow the Life Skills class provided during group for the alternative students in the Bruin Academy.
-SUPPORT GROUP: We will continue the Independent Students’ Support Group, and we will broaden the group to include all high school and mid-high students facing homelessness (a name change will be needed). We will find a way to bring the Mid-High students to the luncheons. We will bring in a variety of speakers from the community to speak about success, hard work, relationships, academics, etc.
... and how I will get there.
1. Equality: Students facing homelessness receive the same academic opportunities as other students.
2. Acceptance: Students and parents are not judged for their circumstances.
3. Support: Families will receive referrals to social and educational services in a safe and stress-free environment.
4. Community: Strong partnerships with community agencies and organizations are vital to the success of the program.
