Sheridan County School District Two Superintendent, Craig Dougherty, says the district will be introducing a few new programs at the start of the next school year to increase graduation rates - and in particular - reach out to struggling teens.

Dougherty says the district has already had local conversations with the Thrive mentoring program out of Bozeman, and expects to have it by the end of September. And he says that will tie in with the district's goal of having a 94 percent graduation rate for the class of 2014.

He says the district is excited about the new partnership and they'll continue to have discussions on how to involve every staff member in the mission of helping kids graduate with a high school diploma.
