As a school psychologist, I’m always looking for better ways to proactively support students. We serve over 1,400 students at Lakes Community High School (Lake Villa, Illinois), driven by a district-wide mission to “ignite passion and discovery in every student.”
While our team has made great progress since LCHS opened in 2004, over the past two years we’ve embarked on an especially exciting journey to rethink student success. Our efforts have centered on an important question:
How can we use data to recognize and support the needs of the whole student?
Here’s how we revamped the way we support students to provide LCHS educators and staff with rich, actionable information on every student.
