“The whole idea behind Guided Pathways and staying on the path is having that hands-on, face-to-face contact with students to make sure they have the resources and are getting the help they need to develop and adhere to an education plan,” said Larry Burns, an EOPS counselor. “EOPS is doing that already. We check in with our students regularly and get progress reports from their instructors every semester. Because we work so closely with them, we’re able to find the underlying cause that may be keeping a student from doing well as they should, whether it’s a job or a family situation or something else.”
