LONGVIEW— Longview public schools are launching a new student profile program.
The program, Doing What Matters, is designed to help more students in the public school system graduate. In addition, school officials says it aims to recognize students who may have behavior issues and get those students the help they need. Longview Independent School District is one of two districts in Texas to receive a grant for the program.
LISD Assistant Superintendent, Jennifer Scott says the information gathered by the profiling program will be a great asset for the district.
"It means not waiting even three weeks for the progress report, but immediate intervention to see what's going on with the kid and what we can do to get them back on track," says Scott.
The program begins at the high school level and will eventually include all campuses in the district. After the program is fully implemented, a student's progress will be tracked from their first to their last day in the district.
