Welcome to the Reef!

Academic performance is one of the best indicators of student success. Coconino Community College is piloting an early alert program using Starfish Retention Solutions that can assist in your success this fall.

Starfish works within Canvas and the courses you are taking to generate indicator notifications and kudos for students based on:

  • Academic Performance
  • Attendance
  • Quiz and test scores
  • Referrals to resources on campus

Other features:

  • Communication to students, faculty and staff
  • Outreach and follow-up by staff
  • A student “Success Network”
  • Online appointment scheduling


How will Starfish help me?

Starfish provides a simple method to refer students for academic assistance early enough in the semester to make a difference. Starfish is not a substitute for direct discussion with students, but serves as a secondary layer of support to alert students as well as campus experts who will assist in addressing concerns.


Important note about protecting the privacy of student records

Starfish users are responsible for knowing and adhering to the College’s policy and state and federal law regarding protecting the privacy of student records.
