is a secondary initiative that will grow out of the development of VocabuWord.com. Though the incentivizing features of GradLock will be available to all high school students, our initial aim is to provide an effective financial incentive for millions of low-income, drop-out-risk students to earn their own monetary “academic allowance” by soldiering through their community & personal challenges to earn their high school diploma.
GradLock will enable parents and/or sponsors to define, track and verify educational and graduation benchmarks for students prior to the student’s ability to vest the “academic allowance” they have earned and saved. Development will be delivered through GradLock.com, GradLock.net, GradLock.org, AcademicAllowance.com, AcademicAllowance.net and AcademicAllowance.org.
More details to come.
