How We Help

Connecting & Empowering Educators

We launched the Ninth Grade Success Network (NGS) to connect teachers, administrators and support staff who are developing Ninth Grade Success programs. NGS participants learn directly from data experts and practitioners who are committed to seeing Ninth Grade Success programs thrive.

Direct On-Site Coaching

CHSS offers direct coaching for educators as they build Ninth Grade Success programs, develop CTE pathways, and expand college readiness opportunities. Our regional coaches provide on-site training at schools. With decades of classroom experience as former teachers, principals and superintendents, our team of seasoned educators are well-versed in these policies and have the firsthand experience to help educators make them a reality.

Strategic Planning for Investments & Time Management

From planning CTE investments that track to local jobs, to developing the class structure and team dynamics needed for Ninth Grade Success, CHSS staff provides educators with critical advice to maximize their results. Our team brings experience stretching from classrooms to board rooms, and is intimately familiar with the foundational elements that make for successful programs and career paths.
