Houston Dropout Prevention Summit
Summit Location: TBD
- The Houston/Harris County community is home to 26 independent school districts. In a community our size we need to have a unified message across all industries and schools that we believe in our children and we want them to succeed and further that their success drives the success of our entire community. The summit will include our largest school districts: Houston ISD, Spring Branch ISD, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, Pasadena ISD, and Galena Park ISD; and some of our smaller school districts: Goose Creek ISD, North Forest ISD and Alief ISD.
- This summit, in collaboration with all stakeholders, will assist schools and school systems in identifying and developing programs and strategies to raise achievement and close gaps. This is accomplished through creating awareness, providing technical assistance, and disseminating research findings on best practices for improving achievement among all students.
- The GOAL is to secure a commitment from community stakeholders to reduce student dropout, increase student graduation, and increase the number of college bound graduates.
