The Role of National Service in Improving P-16 Education Outcomes - Tuesday, September 18, 2018, noon - 1:15pm
National Service Programs provide vital support to students across the nation. These programs support students at various points during their academic journey, whether it be support for kindergarten readiness, reading proficiency by third grade, or high school graduation and college success. In fact, more than 44,000 national service members provide in-school and out-of-school support to at-risk youth, serving in almost 12,000 schools, including 1 out of every 4 low-performing schools and 1 out of every 10 charter schools. This resource, if made more widely available to underserved communities, has the potential to dramatically reduce the educational disparities that leave too many students without the educational foundation they need for success in life.
Want to help your district or school leverage national service to support student success? This webinar will illustrate the role national service plays in helping communities design and implement locally determined, results-driven, cost-effective solutions to improve student outcomes. It will feature program examples and ways that you can leverage national service in your own community.
