Ninth-Grade Success Grant & Performance Reporting

Concerning measures to increase the success rates of ninth-grade students in public high schools in Colorado.
Session:
2024 Regular Session
Subject:
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
Bill Summary

Under current law, the ninth-grade success grant program (grant program) provides funding to local education providers and charter schools to implement a ninth-grade success program to assist students in ninth grade to develop the skills needed to successfully graduate high school and succeed in their education and careers. Beginning in the 2024-25 state fiscal year, and for each year thereafter, the bill requires the general assembly to annually appropriate $2.8 million for the grant program.

Under current law, the office of dropout prevention and student re-engagement (office) submits an annual report to the state board of education, education committees of the house of representatives and senate, and the governor regarding findings and recommendations to reduce the student dropout rate and increase graduation and completion rates. Starting with the report submitted in March 2026, the bill requires the office to include certain ninth-grade performance measures for each public school, school district, the charter school institute, and the state as a whole.
