GEER Re-Engagement Program

Due to the impact of the coronavirus, the United States Department of Education awarded grants to Governors for the purpose of emergency fund relief. As a result, Community Youth Advance (will work with PGCPS to re-engage students in grades K-12 who are identified as at-risk and have been chronically absent during the 2020-2021 school year.

PGCPS and CYA will implement support, resources, and outreach to more than 2,400 at-risk and chronically absent students over the next two years, with the goal of successfully re-engaging students back into the school setting.

Three objectives:

  • Make contact and connect with 100% targeted students/families using both traditional and creative methods – while remaining in compliance with all social distancing, health, and safety guidelines;
  • Re-engage and follow-up with the more than two-thirds of the students who have been “no shows” or chronically absent since school began in August 2020, by connecting the students with appropriate school placements while providing personal support so that students can successfully return to school; and
  • Sustain engagement of re-engaged students located through the efforts of PGCPS school-based personnel, PGCPS Pupil Personnel Workers (PPW), and External Partners.
