Droput prevention and graduation rate improvements at Tucson Unified

Photo of Dr. Trujillo at press conferenceTucson Unified School District has an average graduation rate of roughly 86%. Among all of the efforts to increase this rate, the District believe that the Steps to Success program and the personal connection with the students, along with the wide range of services, allows students to return to school and not drop out.

"I am very proud of the Tucson Unified Steps to Success program and appreciate the support of America's Promise Alliance," said Dr. Gabriel Trujillo, Superintendent Tucson Unified School District. "Over the past 5 years, our Dropout Prevention team along with community partners have reconnected over 1,200 students with almost 700 returning to school. This is a great accomplishment and I feel strongly that each student that we connect with has a better chance of creating a positive, productive future for themselves."
