Our Goal: Increase the nation’s on-time high school graduation rate to 90% for the class of 2020
The GradNation campaign provides those working to increase high school graduation rates with data, best practices and opportunities to connect and learn from one another.
- 70% or less
- 70% to 75%
- 75% to 80%
- 80% to 85%
- 85% to 90%
- 90% or more
The class of 2020 won’t make it to 90% without closing gaps for key sub-groups.
To reach 90% we must close the gaps in the graduation rates of Black/African-American students, Hispanic/Latino students, English-language learners, low-income students & students with disabilities. The closer we get the harder it gets, so there is room for everyone to make a difference.
How to get involved
The GradNation campaign promotes work being done by leaders in every state and creates opportunities for the people doing the work to share their insights and support each other.
GradNation Community Summits bring together leaders from all sectors to examine local data, identify challenges and what’s working, and explore best practices for supporting young people.
