Overview
Founded in 2012, Raise DC "joins public, private, philanthropic, and non-profit leaders together as the District’s comprehensive cradle-to-career initiative focused on improving educational outcomes for youth." In Washington, D.C., only six in ten students complete high school. This grant will support Raise DC’s Graduation Pathways project, one of five Raise DC projects, to engage its cross-sector partners to improve school practices, advance policies that accelerate these practices, and coordinate planning efforts for better allocation of resources. This will include work to (a) improve student transitions to 9th grade, (b) implement flexible "paths to graduation" based on identifying local schools that are beating the odds, and (c) expand the city’s overall supply of schools to better serve "off-track" students.
