Roundtable 23 Preparing Urban Students for Success in College: The Philadelphia Story (session #373)
Grand Ballroom I, Second Floor, Tower Building
A new college-prep curriculum is being used in Philadelphia to help raise student achievement and better prepare students to get into college and do well once they get there. In 2000, only about one-fourth of incoming high school freshmen made it to graduation and into their first year of college. A new managed instructional system has been designed that includes tightly aligned curriculum materials, professional development for teachers and regular diagnostic tests for students. Learn how this new instructional system is working and what promise it holds for ensuring student success.

Facilitators:
Creg Williams, superintendent, St. Louis Public Schools and former deputy chief academic officer, Philadelphia Public Schools; and Seppy Basili, senior vice president, Kaplan K12 Learning Services
