Our first Graduation Destination-Take the Journey: Finish It! kicked off with an outdoor welcome from Superintendent Art Tate, Mayor Bill Gluba, and Board President Ralph Johanson on Saturday, August 10, 2013 at the River’s Edge. Student speakers shared stories of their personal struggles in school and how they found support to complete their high school education. Since last year’s successful Drop Back In: Finish It! event, the district’s dropout rate has fallen from 10% to 8.7% as we continue to reach out to students who have left school and to identify students who may be at-risk of dropping out to offer supports to help them and their families.
Several students took the opportunity to re-enroll in school on Saturday. We hope many others will return and finish their education. For more information, call you text 563/449-4196.
