AT&T High School Retention Program

2012 AT&T Aspire Local High School Impact Initiative request for proposal is now open

3/8/2012

AT&T’s Local Impact RFP will provide funding for currently operating high school retention programs consisting of elements aligned to the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) Dropout Prevention Practice Guide. AT&T is looking to support organizations that are ready to expand to serve additional students or locations, or to add components to strengthen successful programs. Payments ranging from $100,000 to $300,000 for 24 months (2012-14) are available for local programs that emphasize:
  • Service to high school students at-risk of dropping out of school, particularly 9th graders or students in transition from 8th to 9th grade
  • Intervening quickly with targeted services to help these students re-engage
  • Increasing students’ chances of earning a high school diploma
  • Preparing students for college and/or career
  • Providing substantial data to demonstrate positive outcomes
The RFP deadline is April 27, 2012. Visit www.att.com/eduation-news for more information on the 2012 Local High School Impact Initiative and check back often for updates on AT&T Aspire. The AT&T Aspire Local High School Impact Initiative team will review and evaluate all those who respond to the RFP and make determinations as to eligibility after that time.
