From The News Tribune:

More students in Tacoma are graduating high school, but graduating college is another story.

Fewer students enrolled and completed college last year than in previous years, according to a new report released by Graduate Tacoma, a community movement with the Foundation for Tacoma Students.

The foundation is the backbone organization for Graduate Tacoma, which is made up of 265 community partners working toward success of students “from cradle to college and career.”


The district and Graduate Tacoma are working with Tacoma Housing Authority for the initiative. The housing authority is providing vouchers to students to help with housing.
