It’s back to school time again, and through our American Graduate Initiative, Nine remains committed to telling stories that help improve the educational outcomes of young people in our community. Stay Tuned continues to be the place for community dialogue around these complicated issues that impact our entire region.

We’ll explore what school choice means in our region and what’s in store for the upcoming school year and beyond.
