The 360 Blueprint Program was molded after a successful program that was originated in Dallas, Texas called "The Turn Around Agenda." The core of the program is to promote healthy school and home environments to maximize student success, while also providing a myriad of services designed to bridge the gap between school, students, and parents. The program promotes academic excellence, life skills development, self-esteem, and personal growth. Volunteer mentors will come from local churches and the community. The program also assigns Reno Police Department officers and Sparks Police Department officers to participate in elementary schools to serve as role models.
