Site Coordinators are funded by FC-CIS and work independently inside the Clarke County School System to identify “at risk” students, build relationships with them, and work with counselors and educators to develop plans and hold the students accountable.
This one-on-one, individual support starts with referrals from counselors, teachers, and resource officers and develops as Site Coordinators look at grades, attendance and behaviors and define obstacles that may hinder a student from graduating.

“I’m kind of shy, so asking for help was a challenge, but my parents wanted my grades up. The Site Coordinators were like second moms to me. There wasn’t a day that I wasn’t in the counseling office. They would talk to me about what I need to do and sign me up for organizations and programs that would help me succeed.
Ellijah Raines, 11th grader, Cedar Shoals
The Site Coordinators played a big role in helping me through my Spanish class which I struggle in a lot. They helped me find a tutor and, with their help, I went from a 39 to a 78!
