Abstract
  • Education Access and Quality focuses on components of language, literacy, early development, and higher education attainment. Cleveland County (CC) has a high school (HS) graduation rate lower than the NC average. There are several factors influencing the number of students successfully graduating within four-years, including income disparities, the ease of transition into HS, and student mental health. Given the strong influence of mental health on student academic achievement, the High School Mental Health Program (HSMHP) proposes a requirement for all CC public HSs to have a ratio of 250 students to 1 counselor. The proposed nutrition program focuses on increasing participation in school breakfast to improve educational attainment by expanding the School Breakfast Program in CC HSs. The goals of the following policy and program aim to provide public CC HSs with the proper social and nutritional supports through targeted programs to increase HS graduation rates.
