What is your high school/district Summer Melt rate? In other words, what percentage of your high school senior graduates who have received a college acceptance letter enroll in the fall? Do you have an implementation plan to reduce your Summer Melt Rate? The Fulton District has developed a research based implementation plan, Summer PACE, which has on average reduced their Summer Melt by 9%. The plan was published by Harvard Review and featured on NPR.
