The Diploma Planning Institute is a two-day working event during which school and district teams consider local data, research, existing initiatives, and local contexts to develop research-based and working plans to improve student success and graduation rates. The Diploma Planning Institute has been provided in over 30 settings to teams from over 200 participating schools and districts and has resulted in significant graduation rate gains over three to four years in many schools. The Diploma Planning Institute will guide school and district teams to move from “random acts of dropout prevention” to carefully selected and research-based action plans that will significantly improve graduation rates. Participating teams will receive ongoing support from NDPC and resources that will support their local initiatives.
