This partnership supports school and district leaders in northeastern Tennessee and leaders from their regional technical assistance provider, the Niswonger Foundation, to better understand the effectiveness of their existing college and career preparation programs so they can make informed decisions about how to improve students’ college and career readiness. REL Appalachia staff are helping partners address these needs through a series of projects focused on monitoring program implementation and assessing students’ college and career preparation and postsecondary outcomes, including employability skills. These activities will contribute to the short-, medium-, and long-term outcomes described in the partnership logic model below.
Partner districts: Carter County School District, Elizabethton City School District, Greene County School District, Greeneville City School District, Hamblen County School District, Hancock County School District, Kingsport City Schools, Sullivan County School District, Washington County School District
