Project SAIL: An Evaluation of a Dropout Prevention Program.
Thompson, John L.; And Others
Project SAIL (Student Advocates Inspire Learning) is a Title IV-C Project located in Hopkins, Minnesota, designed to prevent students from dropping out of school by keeping them successfully involved in the mainstream environment. This study presents a review of other dropout prevention approaches, describes the intervention strategies involved in Project SAIL and evaluates the effectiveness of the project. The core methodology of Project SAIL is a goal-setting process that encourages individuals to set concrete, measurable goals which are realistic and attainable. In addition, the program utilizes group and individual counseling, teacher and parent involvement and referrals to appropriate community agencies. Project SAIL provides a successful mainstream model for dropout prevention, having achieved two out of three program objectives. (Author)
