When a in Washington DC, with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s student in an urban public school exhibits even one of these support, City Year announced a major new initiative to indicators when they are in 6th grade, that student has a 75% address the nation’s high school dropout crisis – In School chance of dropping out. & On Track: A National Challenge. Through this initiative, City Year seeks to significantly increase the nation’s urban City Year supports school districts’ efforts to turn around the graduation pipeline – the number of students who reach the lowest-achieving schools by providing whole school and 10th grade on track and on time. City Year’s goal is to reach focused supports at the required scale and intensity to ensure at least 50% of all the students who are falling off-track in students stay in school and on track to graduate. To address City Year’s 20 U.S. locations, which will require expanding the the early warning indicators, City Year has developed a model number of corps members from 1,500 to more than 6,000 for supporting students and teachers in high-poverty schools, nationally. called Whole School, Whole Child. The Whole School, Whole Child model leverages City Year’s unique assets to provide a Every 26 seconds another student gives up on school, holistic portfolio of research-based academic interventions, resulting in more than one million American high school extending learning programs, and activities that foster a students who drop out every year. Over the next decade, this school-wide climate of achievement. By deploying City will cost the nation $3 trillion. In urban public schools that Year teams to the subset of high schools and the middle serve primarily low income and Latino or African American and elementary schools that disproportionately generate youth, between 40% and 60% of entering freshmen do dropouts, City Year will help ensure that students are on a not graduate from high school. Nationally, 40% of African path to succeed in school and graduate prepared for college American, 33% of Latino and 8% of Caucasian students and career. attend a high school with a 40% or higher drop out rate. The results of this failure rate are devastating, both to the young Since last year’s Summit, City Year sites have engaged their adults who give up on school and to their communities. local school districts, mayors, community leaders, educators, Dropouts are more likely than high school graduates to private sector champions and board members in this effort be unemployed, in poor health, living in poverty, on public to reverse the trajectory for students at-risk of dropping out of assistance, and single parents with children who drop out school and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. of school.

  4. 4. Scaling City Year’s Impact: National Impact Site Guideposts Every 26 seconds a student gives up on school; one million Americans drop out every year and they are three times more likely than college graduates to be unemployed, and eight times more likely than high school graduates to be incarcerated. Research has shown that as early as 6th grade, students who demonstrate key off-track indicators relating to attendance, behavior and course performance in math and English, have a 75% probability of dropping out of high school. By implementing a scalable, outcomes-based service model focusing on the high schools and feeder middle and elementary schools that disproportionately generate dropouts, City Year will keep students from high-poverty communities on track to succeed in school and graduate as productive, engaged citizens. City Year’s National Impact Site (NIS) designation affirms local strategies to scale City Year’s impact and reach 50% of the students who are off track or falling off track within a district or high-need area. Headquarters will provide increased financial and human capital, which includes leveraging senior leadership to secure resources, helping develop a scale plan in partnership with stakeholders, expanding staff and corps member recruitment capacities, supporting local evaluation and program development and providing national marketing and communications support. The following National Impact Site guideposts, approved by the City Year, Inc. Board of Trustees, are designed to ensure that City Year’s National Impact Sites are developed in a manner that is operationally sound and sustainable. The Board of Trustees will vote to authorize National Impact Site Designation once the following guideposts are met:  Shared Impact Goal: A goal that is shared by local  Mayoral and City Support: Formal support from the stakeholders, including the superintendent, mayor, Mayor and City in the form of funding, support letter teachers, state service commission, site board and and in-kind transportation passes for corps members. philanthropic champions to scale City Year’s impact through the strategic deployment of Whole School,  AmeriCorps Support: The State Commission Whole Child teams.
