American Graduate Day 2014

Our Story

In collaboration with our American Graduate community partners, Alabama Public Television's IQ Learning Network highlights, creates, supports, and sustains community-based initiatives that promote high school graduation in our state. The needs of our local communities drove the creation of the “Birmingham GED Network” designed with The Literacy Council to create opportunities for information sharing on one of our community’s biggest issues as well as the “prescription” of summer reading by pediatricians through the “Prescription for Summer Reading” program. Convening American Graduate community partners has also connected organizations and ideas for a broader reach and increased impact. With backing from the State Superintendent, Dr. Tommy Bice, the “Stay in School Campaign” was created to provide every high school in the state with tool kits addressing the dropout issue, the Alabama Association of School Boards partners co-sponsored an annual state-wide student video contest: “How We Achieve Excellence in Our Schools”, and APT produced a number of Electronic Field Trips called IQ Learning Adventures with more than 2.5 million national/international students participating.
