Students at risk of dropping out and students who have dropped out in the past several years are supported as they transition from traditional schooling to an alternative online model in order to fulfill graduation requirements. The Re-Engagement Specialist works with Everett High School staff, Family Liaisons and Everett families to identify students who are at risk of dropping out of school and implement a tiered intervention system to improve student success. The Re-engagement Specialist aids students in navigating educational systems and works with each student to develop a post graduation plan.  Please contact Sara Paiva at [email protected] for more information regarding re-engagement options. 

DAY 6 is a Saturday/night program that aims to re-engage students who have dropped out of Everett High School. The mission of our Day 6 is to identify those who have dropped out from Everett High School and re-engage them. It is our understanding that many students want to finish high school but are often met with further barriers that exclude them from opportunities for them to be successful. The goal is to expand our re-engagement efforts by transforming EHS into a Saturday/Night Center for students who have dropped out or are at risk of dropping out.
