Keys to dropout prevention
[-
Back to Personal Intervention-]

The Maine Dropout Prevention Guide from the Institute for the Study of Students at Risk lists the essentials of a successful dropout prevention program. Among them:

  1. Teachers who are well trained and have the time, administrative support and encouragement to provide individualized attention and instruction to students.

  2. A challenging academic curriculum that is integrated with the personal and social needs of students.

  3. Flexible scheduling and flexibility for students to earn credits toward a high school diploma.

  4. Clear rules regarding students' expectations and behaviors, along with consistent and fair consequences for violations.

  5. An environment in which students feel safe and cared for, and in which they learn to care for others.

  6. Collaborative partnerships with public agencies, community organizations and citizens.
