The ARISE 2014 baseline report “Cradle to Community Success: Creating a Path Forward” is a snapshot-in-time report showing the starting point for the educational data ARISE is tracking in Anchorage. From this starting point, we can track our progress as we work to affect the outcomes and data indicators the leadership council has identified, and the report will be updated annually.
