This briefing booklet was created by FSG for the Rio Grande Valley Focus working groups to summarize national best practice research and strategies to help achieve the goal of ensuring that all students graduate high school college ready. While strategies and programs are highly context specific, creating a document like this is a great best practice for other CI initiatives because it gives a starting place for work groups to identify their priorities.

About This Booklet

This booklet presents a compendium of research, national best practices, and case studies intended to complement and build upon currently identified strategies to support the goal of Strategy Group 1, that all students within the Rio Grande Valley graduate high school college and career ready. Some of these strategies are best implemented by individual institutions, while others are best implemented across institutions or at a regional level. Also, should Strategy Group 1 prioritize any of these strategies, the group should spend time discussing how those approaches would need to be adopted for the specific context of the RGV.
