Alexandra Caceres, 2011 Capital City Fellow

2011 Capital City Fellow Alexandra Caceres designed the Show Up, Stand Out initiative for the D.C. Public Schools during her fellowship. Now in its fourth year, the program has had measurable, significant impact on attendance among middle schoolers. Nearly 90 percent of students with attendance issues who were referred to the program improved their attendance enough not to be referred during the second year. Caceres has stayed on in D.C. as the program director of the Truancy Reduction Initiative at the Executive Office of the Mayor, Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants. Read more about the Capital City Fellows here.
