Quick-Start Guide

Thanks so much for taking an interest in education and helping us boost high school graduation rates in the U.S. Your work during this hackathon will help us get to 90% by 2020!

Here are four ways to get started:

  1. Visit the Resources page to learn about the required data sets and take a look at the sample bench analyses. (That's right, we've got a head start ready for you!)
  2. Read through the Requirements so you know what you’ll need to submit.
  3. Find a teammate by reaching out to fellow participants.
  4. Take a minute to review the official rules.


We’re here to help. If you have any questions about the challenge, post on the discussion forum or email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
