Success for Ohio: Success for All and Project GRAD Schools Continue Gains in Columbus
Success for All Foundation
Project GRAD is a non-profit prekindergarten through college reform initiative begun by James Ketelsen, a former CEO of Tenneco, to help students in high-poverty schools to gain the skills and then the financial assistance to go on to college. Success for All is a literacy strategy used by GRAD. Other programmatic components include GRAD mathematics, classroom management, social services/parent involvement, and a high school program, culminating in 4-year scholarships to colleges and universities. The 2004 Ohio Proficiency results reflect previous Columbus findings both for Project GRAD and for Success for All. They also reflect outcomes found in states throughout the U.S., affirming that students in Success for All and Project GRAD schools gain more than those in other schools on state accountability tests. This document shows the Success for All and Project GRAD results for the Ohio Proficiency Tests in Reading for grade 4 from 2000-2004.
