GradNation – To increase high school graduation rate in Ventura County with the support of the community and family engagement.
The GradNation Summit is designed to prepare parents for the transition to high school, and to inform and connect them to available resources and opportunities with the goal of increasing the high school graduation rate. The 2017 Summit held at Blackstock Junior High School was attended by approximately 100 middle school parents and their students. The theme “Student Success – You Make It Happen – College and Beyond” was designed to provide parents with information and tools to keep their student on track for high school graduation. Sessions in English and Spanish were offered with topics including: motivating your student; how students’ classes are chosen when entering high school; benefits of participating in OUHSD academies; the college planning process, and risk factors that are barriers to graduation and may lead to delinquency. The 2019 Summit will be held on January 26th.
Sponsorship Opportunities are available.
