Mission: Graduate is committed to using data to assess our impact. Each year we produce a report to measure progress on the data indicators identified in our Student Success Roadmap.

These reports also provide an opportunity to showcase effective practices, in school and out of school, throughout central New Mexico that are making a difference in the lives of our children, youth, and adults.
