The GRAD Partnership

Advancing Student Success Systems

The Carnegie Foundation is a founding member of the GRAD Partnership, a collective effort made by nine organizations partnering with communities to use high-quality student success systems so that schools are empowered to graduate all students ready for the future. The GRAD Partnership is focused on student success systems as they provide schools with a unified system that integrates, extends, and increases the capacity of existing student support efforts, including early warning, on-track, and multi-tiered support systems. High-quality student success systems empower educators to use continuous improvement practices to transform the conditions for learning in schools, including changing adult school practices, mindsets, structures, and policies to enable and ensure the educational success of all students.
