Despite decades of work and millions of dollars invested, the degree divide continues to be one of our nation’s most complex and critical injustices, with deep roots in systems of oppression and racism. Only 22% of students from low-income communities earn a college degree, compared to 67% of their peers from high-income areas.
COVID-19 further exposed and exacerbated inequity, with communities of color and those in low-income areas impacted at disproportionately high rates. We are looking for individuals to join us in our fight for equity during this extremely critical time.
District Partnership Program Team
The District Partnership Program (DPP) team is a new team within OneGoal that is piloting a new program model. The District Partnership (pilot) Program is a system-wide postsecondary solution for districts committed to closing the degree divide in their communities. Partner districts will transform the postsecondary pathway experience for students across schools by building the capacity of multiple adults already in those districts/schools who directly impact critical postsecondary outcomes. In partnership with OneGoal, districts will embed postsecondary success programs, systems, and tools into the fabric of K12 education. From OneGoal’s perspective, an effective model will significantly reduce the cost to serve each student so that any district in the country can access and effectively implement the OneGoal program.
DPP’s overarching goals are to: (1) improve student postsecondary outcomes in partner DPP districts, (2) reduce our reliance on philanthropy, over time, through larger investments of public dollars in the program, (3) support districts to institutionalize sustainable and system-level postsecondary practices and processes, and (4) hire, retain, and grow a highly talented DPP team that continuously innovates in support of our broader vision: to close the degree divide in America.
