  • At-Risk Students | Encompass Academy

    At-Risk Population This year, we have brought several new components to our support of our high at-risk population. Our curriculum has adopted a four component approach, focusing on a student's academic, social/emotional, personalized, and enrichment needs. We have incorporated this approach into our schedule. ​ We have gone to a 1:1 device model whereby every student is given and iPad, and a Wireless Hotspot if needed. We use restorative practices, and have had three staff members trained to support the school. Students meet weekly in restorative circles as a proactive support. We have an on-site school counselor and school social worker. We have forged a relationship with TMCC to offer dual credit classes. These classes support students to be ready for college. We have been working with the Academy for Urban School Leadership on a plan for our Portrait of a Graduate. Time is built into the flexible school schedule for support beyond academics. We build capacity through our relationships with the Children's Cabinet, Paws for Love, Reno Art Works, Reno Bike Project, Sierra Arts, Kidrocker, Redirect Athletics, Urban Lotus, Nevada Coalition to End Domestic Violence, Equus Insight, Great Basin Institute, and Boys and Girls Club. We have forged an important relationship with the Boys and Girls Club, enabling students to participate in a healthy atmosphere from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. It also enables us to provide three meals to all of our students free of charge. We provide 25 meals weekly with the support of the Boys and Girls Club. We require students to wear uniforms, and provide two shirts annually to students free of cost. We have offered three additional hours per day for students who are credit deficient. All students meet annually for the development of an individualized learning plan. This meeting highlights student performance and goals. We partner with the Washoe County School District on extreme cases of truancy. In the 2019-20 school year, it was a goal to continue with a "take no prisoners" attitude with regard to credit earning. As such, students who wished to attend Encompass who were significantly credit deficient would be required to participate in an elongated school day in order to be a student in our program. The additional classes will be focused on credit recovery, health and well-being. We had a 0 period that runs from 7-8 a.m. and after school programming that runs from 2:15-4:15 p.m. This program was put on hold for the 2020-21 school year in light of Covid-19 and a lack of appropriate funds. However, Encompass did appeal to go on a quarterly system to make sure that students could earn a total of 8 credits throughout the school year just by attending with their cohort. Additionally, the school highlighted the need for a balance in education with our families and strategically determined that students would be required to take only two core classes at a time. The quarterly system allows students to focus on four classes each quarter, two electives and two core classes.

Students set goals for completing high school, as well as life afterwards. Students and parents are informed about school policy and procedures, as well as what it takes to be a successful student at Encompass Academy. Individualized Learning Plan Students and staff at Encompass Academy were included in the process of evaluating our mission statement, and developing our core values. Staff have been involved in the process of defining who we are and wish to become since the start of working with AUSL. The most recent activities included a core values process, which led to staff having a greater understanding of what is important to each of us and how that impacts the school as a whole. ​ This process occurred with students through a survey, and the same core values presentation that was completed with staff.
