Solutions for School Administrators

You juggle more demands in a day than the average CEO faces in a week. We’re here to help. We simplify the complex challenges of student support, helping you maximize your resources and focus on improving academic outcomes.

How can City Connects help?

In short, we’ll improve the coordination and delivery of student support in your school. A City Connects Coordinator — a master’s-level school counselor or a school social worker — will organize the resources and structures already present in your school and community, connecting students with services in a more efficient way. The Coordinator will be your point person for community-based service providers and for families, reducing the burden on you and your staff.

Our Student Support Information System creates a customized, confidential student support record for every student, following them from year to year and school to school. This lets us tell you, in real time, how we’re delivering services and enrichment to your students.

With an optimized system of student support in place, principals in City Connects schools see an impact on student academic achievement, standardized test performance, classroom behavior, school climate, and student health and wellbeing.
