Students outside of a Philadelphia school building

The School District of Philadelphia has focused on improving 9th Grade OnTrack rates at the system and school-level in an effort to increase its high school graduation rates. In partnership with the Neubauer Family Foundation, Revolution Impact, LLC and Philadelphia Academies, the To&Through Project is working closely with the School District of Philadelphia in adapting Chicago’s approach to improving students’ high school attainment with actionable research, access to high-quality, research-based data, and targeted professional development. This work includes the development of a 9th Grade On Track indicator and several data tools for principals and teachers across the district, with targeted support for eight high schools in the 9th Grade Success Network.
