Summary

This project proposes the development and implementation of a model system for collecting, documenting, and reporting to the Atlanta (Georgia) Board of Education information that will indicate the number, ages, and grades of students dropping out of the Atlanta Public School System (APS). Furthermore, this project will demonstrate an effective systemic model for the early identification of at-risk students and the provision of programmatic interventions designed to preclude their dropping out. The following aspects of the project plan are discussed: (1) management; (2) early identification; (3) instructional adaptations; (4) behavior management; (5) "Celebration of Us," a self-esteem building program; (6) tutorials; (7) homework center; (8) Saturday school; (9) parental involvement; (10) certificate of merit; (11) support services; (12) alcohol and drug abuse prevention program; (13) health care; (14) education for employment; (15) staff development and training; (16) evaluation. As a result of this project, the APS will have in place the following: (1) an accurate student accountability prototype; (2) a process for the early identification of at-risk students; and (3) a successful systemic model for ameliorating the APS dropout problem. Overall management and coordination of this project belong to the APS-established Office of Dropout Prevention and Recovery; the project planning and advisory group is the Atlanta Collaborative for Dropout Prevention.
