Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $250,000)

The OJJDP FY 10 Earmarks Program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended, to organizations identified in the Conference Report to accompany the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (P.L. 111-117), H.R. Conf. Rep. No. 111-366 at 702-714.

In Metro Detroit, there are 30 high schools that routinely graduate fewer than 60% of their students. United Way for Southeastern Michigan (UWSEM) is committed to turning around all of these high schools by 2018 by increasing graduation rates to more than 80% in five years. UWSEM is working with five schools, including Pontiac High School and Van Dyke Lincoln in Warren. These schools were selected to participate in a five-year turnaround plan in which an intermediary partner with a proven track record of helping large, urban schools improve graduation rates will work with school administration, staff, and other stakeholders.
