State (Massachusetts) Home Page!
In 1981, Jobs for Bay State Graduates
was established. Today, JAG-Bay State (Massachusetts) operates 16
programs serving students in grades 9 to 12. JAG Model programs
are designed to identify students who possess a significant number
of barriers to stay in school, complete a high school diploma, secure
an entry level quality job that leads to a career, and/or pursue
a postsecondary education. JAG-Bay State (Massachusetts) Specialists,
who work with 35-45 in-school students in grades 9 to 12, characterize
a highly accountable program. The JAG Electronic National Data Management
System (e-NDMS) provides a data base capable of answering three
questions: Who is Served?; What Services are Delivered? and, What
Results are Achieved?
JAG Model programs regularly exceed a 90 percent graduation rate
with at least 80 percent of graduates experiencing a positive outcome
(i.e. employed, in the military, or pursuing a postsecondary education)
during the 12-month post-graduation follow-up period.
