Red Clay Consolidated School District Dropout Prevention Conference

On April 26th, Communities in Schools will be hosting a GradNation Community Summit at the Cab Calloway School of the Arts from 7:30am-3:30pm. The summit will be highlighting its holistic approach to dropout prevention and the students that we have helped to stop the stigma and become successful in maintaining their academic pursuits. We will be hosting two panel discussions throughout the day. The highlight of the day will be the student panel, discussing the work that they have done to advance their academic careers since hearing from Dr. Perry in December. They will present on the factors that have contributed to the dropout rates amongst their peers and community, but how they have been able to rise above those barriers to become successful students.
