Rhode Island secondary regulations require all LEAs to ensure that students are well supported by the adults in their schools. No student should “fall through the cracks” because they were unknown to the adults in the building.

From the 2011 Regulations:

“All middle level schools and high schools shall implement strategies for creating personalized learning environments, including the provision of a structure by which every student is assigned a responsible adult, in addition to a school counselor, who is knowledgeable about that student’s academic, career, and social/personal goals.” L-6-4.1
