Abstract/Description:
Students dropping out of high school has resulted in a national, state and local crisis. With the national graduation rate at 77%, there are thousands of students leaving school each year without the skills necessary for post-secondary career or college readiness (Scheel et al., 2009). This study provided fundamental insight into the factors that students perceive as important in keeping them on a positive trajectory towards graduation. The study added value to the knowledge regarding students' perceptions of major mitigating factors in high school as compared to middle school that engaged them in school. The interventions that appear to have importance in assisting promise students in getting on track towards high school graduation were identified for replication in other programs throughout the target district.
