We strengthen schools through technical assistance and professional development to support student on-track and success rates.

Students are twice as likely to graduate on time if they are on-track in 9th grade. A 9th grader is deemed “on-track” if they earn credits in their four core academic classes (Math, English, Social Studies, Science) plus at least one additional class.

Through PAI’s professional development, coaching, and network-wide learning, teams collaborate to provide data-driven interventions and student supports in order to ultimately change the trajectory of students and place them on a path toward college and career success.

Students learning

Inspired by the results of our 9th Grade Success Network, we expanded into middle schools in 2021. Our Middle School Success Network (MSSN) focuses on the critical 6th - 8th grades, years in which students have been shown to be at a higher risk of disengaging from learning. This initiative provides school leaders and teachers with our signature professional development, coaching, and network-wide learning with the aim of transforming schools for student success.
