IDEA Public Schools, a network of tuition-free Pre-K-12 public schools today announced a new initiative to support students in transitioning to college. Through a partnership with student coaching provider InsideTrack, IDEA Public Schools will develop a coaching program to foster college-going attitudes and competencies in its students.

Over the next three years, InsideTrack will work with IDEA Public Schools administrators and staff to develop a student coaching program based on InsideTrack’s research-backed methodologies. Through the program, coaches will work one-on-one with IDEA students to help them make informed college enrollment decisions, develop long-term success plans and build the skills required for college and career success.

Program design is underway and coaching is expected to begin during the 2018-19 academic year. The initiative is being funded through an Education Innovation and Research (EIR) grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
