Schools Committed to OC Plans in Future Years
Note: Schools counted as “committed for future years” include only those to which states or districts have committed formally via a grant agreement, a published strategic plan (such as a state ESSA plan), and/or a contract with Public Impact. For sites that have committed to a range, this count uses the minimum of that range. For sites that have committed to “up to” a certain number of schools, this count uses 75 percent of that maximum, rounded to a whole number.
