The Georgia Department of Education is working to identify states that improved their graduation rate over time. They have identified a total of eight states that they are interested in researching based upon a report shared with them by SREB: Maryland, Delaware, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, California, and Kentucky. They are now interested in the specific strategies that these states have utilized when working with students with disabilities. Specifically in MD, DEL, TN, KY (December).
What approaches may be successful in improving high school graduation rates for students with disabilities? Efforts in four states—Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, and Tennessee—are explored as well as any potential impacts on student achievement.
