Turn Around

GOAL: As part of Volusia County School's drop-out prevention program, the Turn Around program recognizes middle and high school students who have demonstrated a marked improvement in school involvement and citizenship.

PROGRAM:
The program honors a student at each grade level in the middle and high schools who have shown a dramatic achievement in at least two of the following area:
a. attendance
b. attitude (marked by reduction in numbers of referrals)
c. grades (improvement in grades, not necessarily the highest grades)
d. citizenship (school involvement)

RECOMMENDATIONS:
The principal of each school, with the input of guidance counselors and teachers, recommends a student in each grade level whose behavior and grades have shown a marked improvement this school year (or from one year to the next).

RECOGNITION:
Each Turn Around student and his/her parents/guardians are invited to a celebration hosted by FUTURES. School principals, School Board members, District administrators, and members of FUTURES are also invited to attend.

Each student receives a certificate and his/her name is engraved on a plaque displayed at their school.


Many of the Turn Around students have not received positive recognition in the past. Therefore it is our goal that they be reached, motivated, and rewarded as they turn their lives around!
