The William T. Grant Foundation

The William T. Grant Foundation supported our evaluation of the effectiveness of the SSP. From its inception in 1936 to today, its goal is to help create a society that values young people and enables them to reach their full potential. The Foundation funds research and activities designed to improve the quality of research and the use of empirical evidence. Its president, Robert C. Granger, Ed.D., has paid close attention to our research endeavors. For more information about the W.T. Grant Foundation, please see its Web site at .

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has been our funding partner for several years. The Foundation was established in 1950 as a private foundation dedicated to, among other ideals of the Knight brothers, service to community. The support of John Bare, Director of Program Development and Evaluation, has been invaluable to us in our research and development endeavors. Please see for further information about this foundation and its work.

North Carolina Education Research Data Center (ERDC) at Duke University

The North Carolina Education Research Data Center (ERDC) at Duke University is part of a partnership with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to facilitate problem-focused research on education. The ERDC is working with the SSP team on the W. T. Grant Foundation-funded evaluation of the School Success Profile-Intervention Package (SSP-IP). They are responsible for the collection of data on all North Carolina public schools and their students, and will provide access to and consultation on these data over the course of the study period. They are also performing critical data merging tasks that will enable the analysis of unique streams of data, such as SSP survey data and end-of-grade test scores, helping to create a data set that is the first of its kind.
