Days in TPOP Program: 240

Natasha was referred to TPOP with approximately 10   absences in the first quarter. Natasha’s mother was hard to stay connected with but with persistent efforts made by Navigator Munoz and Woodruff, Natasha’s mother agreed that there was a problem with Natasha missing so much school and was appreciative of TPOP’s efforts to assist the family. TPOP navigators maintained consistent contact with the family and continued to offer services and support. Ultimately the family decided that Natasha might do better at her Aunts in California and was sent there with great success.  Not only did Natasha’s attendance improve in the second quarter to only missing 3 days but in the third and fourth quarters she did not miss a single class and her grades improved from failing to A’s and B’s Natasha’s mother was very proud of Natasha’s improvement and TPOP is proud of the entire family for making this happen and by understanding Natasha’s need for help.
