Bridging the Gap

Data suggests that the Postsecondary Success Collaborative, a program aimed to smooth the transition from high school to college, has increased college enrollment rates. Target high schools participating in the initiative saw a 12% increase in the number of students enrolling in college. The initiative provides school districts with a $5.1 million grant with participants agreeing to use the funds to "coordinate academic programs, align K-12 curriculums with postsecondary and workforce requirements, and engage community groups".
