School-age children face a variety of unique challenges and struggles throughout their educational experience. With SparkWheel, you’ll have an engaged partner that customizes integrated student supports to meet your school’s unique needs.
SparkWheel complements existing resources and works to address gaps in support while removing barriers to success—meaning students are able to attend school more regularly and in the best conditions to support learning.
SparkWheel is amazing and we're grateful to have them in our building. They're a great asset to the school and a great presence and support for our students. They look forward to meeting with Student Support Coordinators and they look for them when they’re not in the building. They’re a big part of the school culture.

Enjoyed having SparkWheel in the building this year and noticed that it did not take long for our Student Success Coordinator to develop relationships with students. I noticed students going in and out of her office looking for support.

How It Works
SparkWheel's program is customizable for every community and school. Each school year, our Student Support Coordinators conduct a School Review, which evaluates current needs and resources. Then, they work with school personnel to develop a customized School Engagement Plan. This ensures our work fills gaps in existing resources and does not duplicate existing resources within the school.
Throughout the school year, Student Support Coordinators split their time working individually with case-managed students, holding small groups for students with similar needs, and providing school-wide supports. We monitor progress towards student goals at each grading period and make adjustments to make adjustments to support ongoing success.
Finally, we analyze our work at the end of each school year, reflecting on what works and what doesn’t. Our data-driven model delivers one of the most significant chances of success for the students we serve.
