Returning Teams

Continue building on your work to improve student well-being and academic engagement.

WHY JOIN AS A RETURNING TEAM?

Continue to implement meaningful reforms

Welcome back! Build on the work you’ve already done to improve student well-being and academic engagement by recommitting to be part of the Challenge Success School Program. During the year, you will continue to work with your multi-stakeholder team and a Challenge Success coach to identify and implement practice and policy changes that transform the student experience. Schools that participate in our program over multiple years often achieve the most lasting and meaningful results.

The program follows a school year calendar running from August – June. At this point in time, we have space for conference-only schools, but the full Returning Team package has a waitlist. For more information, please reach out to Margaret Dunlap at mdunlap@challengesuccess.org.

HEAR FROM RETURNING PARTNER SCHOOLS

Challenge Success has been part of our district for five years and has stretched our thinking in terms of how we support the social-emotional well-being of students. We have made strides in looking at the quantity and quality of homework, the scheduling of extra-curricular activities, adding free time and downtime to the school day, and worked to educate students, teachers, and parents on how to develop a balanced lifestyle for our overloaded kids.” 

BETH MCCOY, ASSISTANT SUPERINDENDENT OF DOVER-SHERBORN REGIONAL SCHOOLS

“I can honestly say that our involvement with Challenge Success exceeded our expectations. Meeting, dialoguing and connecting with like-schools, the student survey and working with our coach has been the extra support we needed to begin the process of creating a healthier climate for our students, teachers, and parents.”

DEPUTY SUPERINDENDENT

“The Challenge Success program acted as a breath of fresh air within our extremely narrowly-focused school environment. The program helped to build in P.D.F. (Playtime, Downtime, and Family time) that every student needs in order to find the necessary balance in their day.”
