OnTrack Greenville’s vision is a Greenville County where all students have the tools and opportunities to achieve their full potential, graduate from high school, and become contributing members of their communities.
OnTrack Greenville’s mission is to mobilize people and resources that eliminate barriers to success for students, families, and educators.
As an initiative of United Way of Greenville County, OnTrack Greenville partners with the following schools and special programs:
· Berea High
· Berea Middle
· Carolina High
· Greenville Early College
· Lakeview Middle
· Tanglewood Middle
To make sure all students are on track to graduate on time, every school in Greenville County monitors student attendance (A), behavior (B), and course performance (C). This allows schools to note when a student is off track in their “ABCs”. When this happens, a team of school and community professionals meet to discuss how the student can be best supported to get back on track. You may hear these referred to as “OnTrack Meetings”.
What makes OnTrack Greenville schools special is the addition of hand-selected partners and full-time staff who work with your student and the entire family. This includes services like
· Access to mentorship
· Access to health care
· Additional academic supports
· Specialized student clubs
· Social skill development
· Mental health supports
All of this is possible thanks to the OnTrack Facilitator and the community partners in your building. This Facilitator leads meetings, checks in on students, coordinates different opportunities and supports for your student, and helps the entire school environment be a positive and encouraging place.
OnTrack Greenville also believes in supporting the adults in the building through staff education, appreciation events, book studies, celebrations, and coaching on wellness.
OnTrack Greenville is committed to serving students in the White Horse community, improving existing programs, and responding to new needs that emerge in the schools and communities.
