American Graduate: Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy
Feb. 26, 2015
We’ll show you how the Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy in the Phoenix Union High School District is taking students who are close to dropping out and helping them graduate. Most of the students come from impoverished backgrounds and face difficult life circumstances that create obstacles to graduation. We’ll also have a discussion of what those circumstances are and what is being done to help students overcome them. Dr. Kent Scribner, Superintendent of PUHSD, Cyndi Tercero, Dropout Prevention Program coordinator for the district, and Dr. Steven W. Green, principal of Skyline High School in Mesa, will discuss drop out issues.
