Multiple Pathways and Support Services

helping students overcome barriers to success

The Multiple Pathways and Support Services Department encompasses a broad range of support programs and activities which play an integral part in the school district's efforts to provide optimal educational experiences for every student. The primary purpose of our department is to eliminate barriers to wholesome school adjustment and assist school personnel and parents in developing the maximum potential of all students according to individual needs and ability. While all students benefit to some extent from Student Services' programs, the primary focus is directed toward assisting those students who exhibit problems traceable to social, emotional, physical, and developmental conditions which impede the learning process.

We are extremely excited to offer a new opportunity for students who are two or more years over-age. The Bridge to Success Program addresses all of the barriers to graduation through a comprehensive approach. By leveraging national, state, and local partners, Duval County Public Schools has developed a program that will provide individualized support to help students graduate on time and ready to fulfill college and career goals.

The Bridge to Success Program includes our current over-age school sites located at the Bridge of Northeast Florida and JWJ-ACT Center as central hubs, with additional sites located within neighborhood school. This allows eligible students to continue to attend school and participate in the extracurricular activities at their neighborhood school, while still receiving the support needed to get back on track. Supports include:

  • Rigorous face-to-face instruction with a focus on ACT/SAT preparation
  • Student advocates and mentors
  • Positive behavior supports and interventions
  • Support for attendance
  • Parent involvement activities
  • Structured after-school programs, including extracurricular activities, career exploration and internship opportunities

Program eligibility:

  1. 2 or more years overage and/or 1 or more retentions
  2. Priority given to students in the schools housing the programs
  3. Seniors admitted on a limited basis

Programs are located in area schools, with transportation provided in zoned areas for the designated schools, with routes established for central hubs.
