WHAT IS IT
Our Student Enrichment Program (SEP) places site coordinators on school campuses throughout Duval County, with the goal of providing an array of critical services to students who are at-risk of falling behind or dropping out of school. While site coordinators work individually with select students from the school body, hundreds of others are reached through school-wide services such as career fairs, literacy programs and parent events.
To provide a full spectrum of critical services to the students attending schools, through collaboration with Communities In Schools’ TEAM UP, Take Stock In Children, Achievers For Life and Duval Reads! programs, as well as other non-profits.
- During 2010-2011 school year, SEP Student Advocates provided services to 1,771 students in Duval county schools.
- In the 2009-2010 school year, 92% of students in the SEP program were promoted to the next grade level.
- SEP was highlighted in the Florida Times-Union series on public education called “City of Hope” and was identified as on the “Ten Reasons to Hope: Who’s Helping and What Could Work.”
