Dr. Julie Edmunds

Dr. Julie Edmunds (SERVE) received a grant award from the US Department of Education for the project “Follow Up to the Study of the Efficacy of North Carolina’s Early College High School Model”. This three-year project will follow students randomly assigned to either Early College High Schools or “business as usual,” the abstract notes. “This follow-up study will determine the impact of North Carolina’s Early College High School model on students’ high school outcomes associated with college readiness, including their graduation from high school and their attainment of college credits while in high school, as well as on students’ initial enrollment and persistence in postsecondary education. In addition, this study will conduct a formal cost-benefit analysis of the program. Finally, this study will explore the influence of different implementation factors on students’ college readiness and postsecondary enrollment.”
