About this grant

This renewal grant will enable the Commonwealth Corporation to continue to increase program quality and enhance the Diploma Plus project. Diploma Plus is a unique two-stage program that reconnects dropouts and students who have not reached their potential in traditional high schools to education and employment options. Over the next two years, the grantee will provide leadership development opportunities and technical assistance activities to schools within the Diploma Plus network. This renewal will also enable the grantee to support capacity-building aspects of the Pathways to Success by 21 initiative, a statewide effort co-convened by the Commonwealth Corporation and the Massachusetts Department of Education to encourage similar program models.
