DCPS Persists is a new program that will provide students in the Class of 2020 with a guaranteed support network as they embark on the next chapter of their educational journey. The program is the nation’s first college persistence initiative led by a traditional public school system.
Eligible students who plan to go to college will be provided with a support network that ensures they have the guidance and resources they need to succeed in earning a degree. Starting with the Class of 2020, 750 college-bound DCPS graduates will be able to connect to a DCPS Persists coach to help them navigate the transition to college. Coaches will assist students with academic, financial and other resources available on their college campus. They will support and check in with students regularly throughout the first two years of their college experience.
