Also known as the implementation period, Phase Two will be used to implement the programs created during the planning phase. This portion of the initiative is designed to last two to three years.
The final phase of the project will be focused on national policy changes that will help to build completion rates at community colleges across the country.
Alamo Colleges and Lone Star College are two of the community college systems in Texas to get grant money for improving graduation rates on their campuses. According to a report at the San Antonio Business Journal, the planning phase of the process was completed at Alamo Colleges in April of this year, and the implementation phase has already begun. Lone Star College will also become a part of the initiative, with ideas like requiring students to declare a major upon enrollment to the school to encourage commitment to the process.
