JOIN THE INITIATIVE - WHAT YOU CAN DO
Nearly 90,500 students did not graduate from Florida's high schools in 2010. In Leon County, 68% of our high school students graduated.* Those missing students represent lost opportunity, resources, and income for our community. Schools can't do it alone, they need community support. *2010-2011 Federal Graduation Rate
