Evidence Based Education Request Desk. EBE #359
Regional Educational Laboratory Southeast
This Evidence Based Education (EBE) response describes characteristics of graduation coach initiatives in three states (Georgia, Alabama, and California). Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Southeast has received over 19 requests for information on various initiatives, programs or research related to improving graduation rates. For example, the staff received requests from two state departments interested in finding out what other states in the region were doing to improve graduation rates. They responded by compiling a state by state listing of some dropout prevention efforts underway in the six southeastern states. Given the high level of interest in initiatives to improve graduation rates, this response provides descriptive information on one state-level initiative identified (state funding for "graduation coaches") that was common to two southeastern states. The information is organized into three tables discussed briefly in the text: (1) Overview of State Initiatives; (2) Roles and responsibilities; and (3) Data collection and coaches' reports. Methodology is appended. (Contains 3 tables and 2 footnotes.)
