Summary

This report provides descriptions of strategies for dropout prevention at the secondary level and presents examples of programs that successfully utilize these strategies. The information is based on data from a review of nearly 200 programs at secondary schools across the four-state Western region that includes Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah. This report is divided into two sections. Section 1 describes the following strategies for dropout prevention: (1) involve business, community, and parents; (2) offer alternative schedules and sites; (3) reduce program size; (4) target special populations; and (5) provide appropriate services. Section 2 provides brief descriptions of the following promising secondary school dropout prevention programs: (1) Comprehensive Training for High-Risk Youth; (2) The Health Academy; (3) Washoe High School; (4) Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Project; (5) Mountainland Tutorial and Vocational Education Program; (6) CLassroom Intervention Program; (7) Tucson Dropout Prevention Collaborative; (8) Project Success; (9) Newcomer High School; and (10) ACE. These programs provide regional representation and include at least one program from each of the states in which programs were reviewed. They also represent a variety of approaches, and each successfully utilizes several of the strategies presented in this report. The name and address of a contact person for each is included. A list of 27 references and one table are included. (JS)
