America's Promise Alliance Dropout Prevention Summits: Mobilizing Action to Address the High School Dropout Crisis Across the Nation
Gifford, Beth; Evans, Kelly
America's Promise Alliance (NJ1)
In this final evaluation of the America's Promise Dropout Prevention Summits, the evaluation reveals that the Summits not only served as the catalyst for the creation of new programs and collaborative efforts around ending the high school dropout crisis, but strengthened existing work, political and public awareness, and funding at the state, local and school level. Most impressive, this final evaluation highlighted that momentum from the original summits has been sustained with the majority of dropout prevention workgroups established in response to these convenings still intact today, and meeting on a regular basis. Specifically, 77 summit conveners surveyed reported that a collaboration of community agencies is continuing the work from the summit and 84 percent said the momentum generated by the summit remains strong.
