Engaging the wisdom and support of students, parents, and the community at-large is imperative as steps are determined and efforts focused in moving forward to improve academic achievement for African American male students. Fifteen focus group sessions were held with parents, students, teachers, and community members and leaders; two focus group sessions were held with African American male students attending summer school;two community forums took place —one in High Point and one in Greensboro; and a focus group session was held with young African American males who attended a leadership summit sponsored by NCA&T State University and GCS. In addition to the focus groups and community forums, approximately 600 responses to an online questionnaire were received between August 10, 2011 and September 1, 2011.
