American Graduate

Vegas PBS is a Public Media Community Hub to collect and disseminate important information about the dropout crisis in Nevada. We are leveraging our communications technology expertise and existing partnerships to disseminate the information. The purpose of the initiative is to help teachers and parents that work with students in danger of dropping out. Vegas PBS has engaged with the following public broadcasters as partners to broaden the impact of this initiative: KCEP - Power 88; Nevada Public Radio - KNPR  and KCNV.

Vegas PBS is working with national experts, state leaders, Clark County School District (CCSD) Divisions, students, parents and teachers of target schools to develop meaningful messaging, educational resources, and professional development resources. A three-pronged approach has been developed to reach all levels of the community: Outreach in the Community, Production on-air and Online Resources. 

The staggering rate of dropouts in America poses a serious threat to our national welfare -- and to the lives of young people at risk. More than 25% of the current ninth graders will not graduate from high school. It is a problem that must be solved. Public media is joining the fight -- with a bold new initiative, American Graduate.
