Welcome to Locust Grove High SchoolGraduation Coach: Justin CoferPhone Number: (770) 898 - 1452 Ext. 109___________________________________________________________What is a Graduation Coach?
The High School Graduation Coach initiative, championed by Governor Sonny Perdue during the 2006 legislative session, allows each of Georgia’s high schools and middle schools to employ a coach. This is the first program of its kind to be implemented statewide. The coach’s primary responsibility is to identify at-risk students and help them succeed in school by keeping them on track academically before they consider dropping out. The coaches identify, recruit and engage parents and concerned adults, organizations and government agencies to serve in a variety of ancillary roles. The Georgia Department of Education and Communities In Schools provides training, support, and technical assistance.Responsibilities of a Graduation Coach?- 9th Grade Transition Program- 9th Grade Student Support Team Contact- SIEP Tutoring Coordinator- Credit Recovery Coordinator- Response to Intervention facilitator- Instructional Focus Administrator
