Back to School – Stay in School

BTS/SIS is a program dedicated to providing students from elementary school to high school with academic and social support. The program aims to enhance student success by reducing the absenteeism and dropout rate, providing a higher level of academic and cultural enrichment, increasing parental involvement and improving overall perceptions about public schools.

The program consists of four main components:

(1) The annual Back to School Rallies that encourage communities to join their local NAACP Branch in motivating students about going back to school

(2) Academic Enrichment Programs that provide students with extra academic support

(3) Parent/Family Workshops that work to improve parents involvement in their child’s education as well as improve their own educational and technological abilities, and

(4) the Reducing Absenteeism and Dropout Campaign that recognizes improvements in student behavior and attendance.
