The 2015 Washington State Legislature directed WSIPP to complete an evaluation of the College Bound Scholarship Program, emphasizing degree completion rates at secondary and postsecondary levels. The study will include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Scholarship recipient grade point average and its relationship to positive outcomes;
- Variance in remediation needed and differentials in persistence between College Bound Scholarship recipients and their peers; and
- The impact of ineligibility for the College Bound Scholarship Program, for reasons such as moving into the state after middle school or change in family income.
The report is due to the legislature by December 1, 2018.
