AVID AHE coach on campus May 11 and 12

This week we will be welcoming Yvonne Ortiz from AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) for Higher Education (AHE). Yvonne is our AHE coach and will be coming to campus on Wednesday, May 11th and Thursday, May 12th.

The purpose of Yvonne’s visit is for her to learn about Shoreline’s key projects and future plans related to student success. In her two days here, Yvonne will engage in conversations with faculty and staff from instruction and student services. As our AHE coach, she can apply her wealth of experience and expertise to help us enhance and support our student success efforts. Yvonne’s visit provides an excellent opportunity for us to reflect on the work we have accomplished over the year and how to move forward even more effectively.

There are also two scheduled open sessions (below), as well as scheduled meetings with key groups throughout the visit.

Ride the wave and refer students to come SEA us!

Dear Campus:

The Shoreline Early Alert (SEA) team would like to thank staff and faculty for continuing to refer students to academic intervention, support, and services! We are currently at over 160 (domestic and international) SEA referrals…that’s over double where we were at this point last quarter! Thank you for continuing to support our students and connecting them to resources.

Since an early alert works best when it’s early, this is a reminder that May 9th is the last day a “W” grade is issuedso there is still time to refer students for intervention. Examples of SEA referrals include: 

  • Low test scores
  • Unexplained excessive absenteeism or tardiness
  • Pacing in an online class
  • Not doing assignments
  • Financial matters
  • External concerns

What happens next:
After our team receives a referral a member will work to respond within 24 hours to both you and the student. We continue to reach out to the student in order to set up an initial meeting where we assess the student’s needs and most appropriate resources. *REMINDER: Intervention is a process and may not produce immediate results. Our goal is to reach out to the student early in the quarter and connect them to the appropriate resources.*

Visit our site to learn more about SEA or to view our Referral Form.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and to support our students!

Thanks,
Nicki Sunwall, Erin Wilson, Lianne Almughirah, Jennifer Coogan

Productive Persistence Workshop, Thurs., Feb. 4

What is this?  This workshop, offered by Lawrence Morales and Jane Muhich, math professors at Seattle Central, presents usable approaches to helping your students stay the course, build stamina and succeed. While the original work was done with math students, this applies to all students in all disciplines, and Profs. Morales and Muhich have built a large cohort of faculty who have adopted these strategies. Watch this video to learn more!
