Graduation Coach supporting Black Students

Did you know that St. Pat's has a Graduation Coach supporting Black Students? This year, we are so pleased to welcome David Kajoba to our team in this important role. Many of our students will recognize him by the posters that are up around the school.

Graduation coaches are caring adults who pay close attention to students, build strong relationships with them, and offer or coordinate services and interventions. They teach specific problem-solving strategies. They maintain parental communication and support parental decisions. They foster connections between students, schools, families, and the community. Through it all, they keep a laser-like focus on educational progress. The goal of the graduation coach is to empower students to transition successfully into high school, help them succeed academically, and graduate with a plan for their future.
