The author of this brief discusses that racial disproportionality in school disciplinary practices has a long history, and still continues today. In the last three decades, racial disproportionality in school suspensions has increased noticeably, especially in high socioeconomic status (SES) schools. Empirical evidence suggests that exclusionary discipline practices result in further exclusion, school failure, and dropout. Today, nationwide African American students are disproportionately...

"This matrix of Asian American/Pacific Islander programs provides a snapshot of over 50 programs across the country focusing on AAPI youth development and prevention of high-risk behaviors. It captures the variation in emphases and populations, innovative strategies and collaborations, the wealth of materials, including culturally-based curriculum and evaluation instruments developed by these programs, and the sources of funding ranging from the conventional to the creative. Contact...

This paper advocates expansion and better integration of efforts to connect high school dropouts between the ages of 16 and 24 to pathways to postsecondary credentials that have value in the labor market. The paper highlights examples of innovations in policy, program delivery, pedagogy in adult education, youth development and dropout recovery, and postsecondary education that should be built upon in developing more robust and successful dropout recovery and postsecondary education policies...

The information that follows and an accompanying tool developed by the National High School Center can help schools and districts to systematically collect early warning indicator data so they can identify students at highest risk of dropout. An early warning system can be implemented at the school as well as at district levels. The role of the state is critical for providing support that can help districts and schools collect the key information with relative ease, including the use of...

Student engagement with school, a multidimensional construct, is considered the primary theoretical model for understanding dropout and is, quite frankly, the bottom line in interventions to promote school completion. Variously described as a commitment to and investment in learning, identification and belonging at school, participation in the school environment, and initiation of an activity to accomplish an outcome, engagement is associated with desired academic, social, and emotional...

"The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) administers a statewide graduation coach program to identify and provide early intervention services to students at risk of dropping out of school. The program was initiated in the 2006-2007 school year and supported the placement of a graduation coach in Georgia public high schools. The program was subsequently expanded in 2007-2008 to include graduation coaches in middle schools. This program supports GaDOE Strategic Goal One by providing school...

"There is ample evidence that poor health in childhood and adolescence is associated with higher risk of dropping out of high school. This association is suggestive of a causal effect of health problems on dropout and a potential role for health interventions to reduce the proportion of high school students who drop out. Interventions with such a dual benefit—improving health while decreasing dropout—would be important policy priorities. With the goal of identifying strategic priorities...

This report builds upon a series of National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reports on high school dropout, completion, and graduation rates that began in 1988. The report includes discussions of many rates used to study how students complete or fail to complete high school. It presents estimates of rates for 2007 and provides data about trends in dropout and completion rates over the last three and a half decades (1972-2007) along with more recent estimates of on-time graduation...
