Colleges work to convince local students to consider higher education

One of the biggest problems area educators have today is getting Central Valley students to believe higher education is a possibility for them. It's an attitude that both K-12 and post-high schools are battling with a host of tools and programs.

"We really have two areas of focus," said Nancy Shaw, who is the Beyond Our Gates: Tomorrow Project Administrator at the University of the Pacific.

"One is to increase the percentage of SUSD (Stockton Unified School District) students going to college. The second is to increase the overall high school graduation rates."

Pacific's strategy toward accomplishing that goal has focused on the Tomorrow Project for the last three years. The project gives students in sixth through ninth grades the chance to attend academies on campus.

New programs aim to increase graduation rates

New programs aim to increase graduation rates

While high school graduation rates appear to be up in the Central Valley, Stanislaus and San Joaquin schools are determined to increase them further by implementing valuable programs to help keep kids in school.

Slated to roll out this month, Come Back Kids — a new charter school run by the Stanislaus County Office of Education — was specifically designed to address the academic needs of students 16 through 23 who are at risk of not completing high school or who have already dropped out.
