Austin College Access Network: Protocol for Shared Supportive Intervention

Eight community-based organizations (CBOs) of the Austin College Access Network (ACAN) directly serving students have made a commitment to Shared Supportive Intervention whereby college counselors and advisors collaborate with practitioners of the CBOs to provide timely supports and services that seek to address critical milestones toward successfully completing a postsecondary credential.

ACAN consists of the following organizations:

American Youthworks
Austin Community College
Austin Partners in Education
Breakthrough Austin
College Forward
Communities in Schools
Con Mi Madre
E3 Alliance
Goodwill Central Texas
Hispanic Scholarship Consortium
KIPP Austin
Lifeworks Austin
TG
Texas State University
Workforce Solutions

Aggregate data to be collected across institutions of higher education (IHEs) include core performance measures intended to promote full-time college enrollment, FAFSA/TASFA completion, persistence into the fall of the second year, continuous enrollment, transfer from 2-year to 4-year colleges, and degree completion within six years.

The resources below are two practical documents for ACAN/AOYC. Please note that there is a new Quick Guide (2 pages) for the Protocol for Shared Supportive Intervention that is intended for CBOs to use as a quick reference tool. It includes some of the most frequently used information in the Protocol, including what to do with your FERPA forms.

The links below of the ACAN/AOYC Protocol for Shared Supportive Intervention and Protocol Quick Guide are always up to date.
