The Research Says…

Sixth graders with poor attendance (less than 80 percent), a failing mark for classroom behavior, a failing grade in math or a failing grade in English had only a 10 percent chance of graduating within four years of entering high school and only a 20 percent chance of graduating a year late (Balfanz & Herzog, 2005).

Building Early Warning Systems
  • According to Craig Jerald, an early warning system should:
    • identify risk factors by individual student
    • aggregate risk factors by school and type of school
    • identify rates of decline in academic achievement and engagement
    • identify school-level outcomes (on track by grade, off-track recovery rates, and graduation rates), and system wide analysis of student characteristics, risk factors, outcomes, and impact of interventions.

• Align performance standards to college and career readiness

• Focus on transitions from high school to college and careers as well as on transitions into high school

Schools that offer fewer math courses below Algebra I reduced the odds of dropping out by 28 percent, and those that offer calculus reduced the odds by 55 percent (Lee & Burkham, 2000).

Effective teachers need to be working closely with those most at-risk for dropping out…

Check & Connect :

  • Provides trained monitors to small groups of students.
  • Closely follow tardiness, absenteeism, behavioral referrals, and academic performance and meet with individual students each week.

Intensive interventions such as Check and Connect can cut dropouts by as much as half, but they are even more effective when implemented with school wide reforms (Jerald, 2007).
