“The 2 CGMC students I have now are among the best. They have also out performed many older students and contributed a lot to the classes. My online courses are highly interactive and the students and I engage in ongoing discussions throughout the semester. Your students were well prepared, clear thinking and respectful to other students, even when they were disagreeing or correcting the other student. Excellent modeling of what I hope for with this experience.”

What Do We Need to Improve?
  • Difficult to coordinate schedules with five individual school districts

  • Sharing the perception of the middle college, especially since CGMC is not a traditional design
  • Stability of CGMC Leadership
three significant lessons
Three Significant Lessons
  • Try to develop stability in leadership at the beginning – changes in leadership can cause different visions and/or new starts/stops in the process
  • Be flexible to the needs of your own community – they may not fit the “traditional middle college model”
  • Involve local school counselors early in the planning stages
advice to new grantees
Advice to New Grantees
  • Recognize that despite the cultural changes in your community, the various roadblocks, and lack of funding – this makes a SIGNIFICANT impact on students who may not have gone to college and the program IS WORTH IT!
next steps
Next Steps
