Persistence to Graduation

Published: 5/24/2017 9:19 PM

The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) provides a variety of supports to schools and districts to identify students who may be off-track for College and Career Readiness, promotion, and/or on-time graduation and provide interventions to support students until they earn a diploma.  KDE provides:

- A Professional Learning Community, including training in use of data to drive interventions ​

Evidence based strategies and/or interventions

2017 Persistence to Graduation Summit Registration Flyer

KDE has a limited number of scholarships available to waive the registration cost to attend the 2017 Persistence to Graduation Summit, which will be held June 14-15 in Lexington.
SB 97 has provided an opportunity for districts across the state to support more students in earning a high school diploma. In recognition of the fact that additional education options may be needed to re-engage former dropouts and prevent students from leaving school without a diploma, KDE is hosting the 2017 Persistence to Graduation Summit June 14-15 at the Lexington Convention Center. All sessions will feature Kentucky schools and strategies that have been successful in (re)engaging students in a path to graduation. Sessions will be highly interactive and will connect to one or more of the following strands: Student Re-engagement and Transition Strategies, Alternative Programming, Community Partnerships, or School Climate and Culture. 
Registration fee waivers are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. To request a registration fee waiver please go to:
You will be sent a confirmation if your scholarship is approved. If you receive a confirmation, there is no need to register for the summit separately because you will be registered automatically.

We look forward to seeing you at the summit!
