Frankford High School Receives a $500,000 Grant

Frankford High School received a $500,000 check from AT&T. The money will support a new initiative designed to identify students at risk of eventually dropping out and bombard those students with extra support.

The program is called Diplomas Now and actually emerged out of research conducted right here in Philadelphia (more on that later). Today Diplomas Now operates in 29 schools across 13 cities. Philadelphia now has two of those schools: Frankford and Grover Washington Middle School.
