The recommendations provided by the IES in their guide are provided below as they have also had evidence of success in this proposal’s Targeted Teen Outreach Program:
- Intimately monitor the progress of students who choose to participate in the program, and proactively intervene when these students show early signs of attendance, behavior, or academic problems.
- Provide intensive, individualized support to students who have fallen off track and face significant challenges to success.
- Engage students by offering curricula and programs that connect schoolwork with college and career success and that improve students’ capacity to manage challenges in and out of school.
- For schools with many at-risk students, create small, personalized communities to facilitate monitoring and support.
