Written letters of collaboration between the Teen REACH program and collaborating schools must be on file in the Teen REACH office. These agreements facilitate collection of data on academic achievement as well as coordination of homework assistance and tutoring efforts. Programs will be required to submit information about students' progress, based on grade reports and attendance and suspension records, to the Department. Copies of signed linkage agreements with every school where participants are attending must be on file indicating an acknowledgment of the schools' willingness to provide copies of the above information. Please note that schools will need to obtain parental/guardian consent before school records can actually be submitted to the Teen REACH program.
