While the recently released Building a Grad Nation report shows that the country reached a record high graduation rate of 81.4 percent in 2013, progress on the state level has been uneven, with statewide graduation rates ranging from 69.2 to 89.7 percent. The research also finds that nearly all states graduate significantly lower percentages of students from low-income families, students of color, and students with disabilities.

The three-year initiative will focus on increasing graduation rates by investing in three key things:

  • encouraging statewide innovation and collaboration
  • sharing that knowledge and replicating what works
  • developing successful models all states can replicate

America’s Promise Alliance will offer up to three $200,000 grants to organizations capable of leading statewide efforts to boost graduation rates and create new models for the nation.
