What can educators do to enhance young students’ academic performance? How can they increase the likelihood of on-time high school graduation?

This archived webinar explores successful school transitions into and out of elementary school aimed toward enhancing students’ academic performance.

Join a team of researchers and school principals as they explore several successful strategies for helping students transition in and out of elementary school.

This webinar is one in a series targeted at school and district administrators, school counselors, teachers, school board members—anyone with an interest in strategies for promoting successful transitions for students into and out of elementary school.
