Project Graduation

The Dysart Unified School District has a variety of academic pathways to meet individual student needs.  Project Graduation will provide academic supports for struggling students to ensure they graduate from high school college and career ready.  Data and research have shown that students who fail to meet reading and math standards are not successful in high school courses. Therefore, the district has created this special pathway to help these students succeed.  Our goal is to involve students, parents and the Response to Intervention (RTI) team to support each student through graduation.

Participating schools include Dysart Elementary, El Mirage, Kingswood, Luke, Parkview, Riverview, Surprise, and Thompson Ranch.
