Abstract/Description:
The primary purpose of the study was to identify whether or not relationships exist between at-risk students in the transition program of a local Central Florida public school district and their on-track graduation progress during high school. Data were also used to describe student demographics of at-risk students and compare those demographics to the school demographic profile. On-track status is a major metric since students have not formally completed the program nor have they graduated. This study adds to the district's understanding of the effectiveness of its transition program. The study's findings will inform the district in its efforts to accurately define its return-on-investment in the transition program.
