3 Why NGAs? One quarter of all students (a third to a half of our minority students) leave high school without a diploma. 1 million/year nationally -- about 3,500/year in Broward drop out Success in the ninth grade is a stronger predictor of graduation than family background or test scores: As early as first semester in 9 th grade, a student with 1 core failure and 5 absences is far more likely to drop out. Ninth graders promoted on time to tenth grade are three and a half times more likely to graduate.

4 Why NGAs in BCPS? First NGA was piloted at Stranahan High School in 1999 funded by an Annenberg Grant. Data (FCAT and TABE) from one pilot NGA was collected to compare with the remaining ninth grade students. Results were dramatic: Absences reduced by 26% Behavior reduced by 50% (days in IS) Student achievement increased by 25%
