At Making Community Connections Charter School we have a set of 18 Habits that map our students' progress toward life, career, and college readiness. Students are assessed on these habits throughout all their learning experiences as well as their internship and school community interactions. Privileges (such as serving as school ambassadors, earning off-campus privileges, and representing our campuses at off-site events), are based on habits ratings.At any time students (and their parents/guardians) are able to access their Habits progress, represented in a "heat map" that compiles their assessments over time. More than one graduating student has successfully leveraged their Habits report into merit scholarships when applying for college!
