More Educational success stories: The "Ready to Impact" Program

The Ready to Impact program was implemented as a pilot, here in Wichita, at Southeast High School in November 2006. The project has since expanded to include Heights High and West High schools. It's purpose is to provide targeted services to students to help get them on track for graduation and post-secondary options. In 2008-2009, the program served students at Southeast, Heights, and West High schools and successfully graduated 86% of the Seniors involved, who would not have graduated without the assistance this program provided. In 2009-2010, of the 73 students served, 86.6% successfully graduated with West high graduating 12 out of 12 for a 100% success rate.

The program is led by Ms. Rhonda Hicks (pictured above); a truly dynamic and committed educator. USD259 has since entered into an contract with Ms. Hicks to expand her program to reach even more of the District's at-risk youth.

We would like to offer our sincere appreciation and our congratulations to Rhonda Hicks. Yours is an excellent program, and we thanks you for all that you do to improve the educational outcomes for children.
