American Graduate Day 2015

American Graduate Day 2015 was a live, seven-hour, multiplatform broadcast to focus public attention on organizations and individual champions keeping children on the path to timely graduation from high school. American Graduate Day centers around the critical themes of career readiness and college completion, caring consistent adults, dropout prevention and reengagement, early education, more and better learning, special needs and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art + Design and Mathematics). Journalists, thought leaders, and celebrities join together to raise awareness of the work being done across the country to keep children in school. The broadcast and online event featured a mix of national and local segments from public television stations across the country that showcased how community organizations and individual champions provide support, advice, and intervention services to at-risk students, families and schools. Throughout the day, viewers could participate in the program and engage with their local public television stations and featured community organizations by asking questions and sharing ideas on Twitter and Facebook.
