Nogales Public Schools Exemplary Program. Final Report 1974-75.
Nogales High School District 10, AZ.
The purpose of the Nogales (Arizona) dropout prevention program was to include business, government, labor, and community groups in a collaborative program to provide intermediate and secondary schools with access to the resources of private and public employers. The primary objectives of the project were to achieve a 50% reduction of the dropout rate and to achieve a 75% successful placement of students in the target population. Two main activities comprised the project: (1) the student phase component which included work experience, career information, and career and placement services; and (2) the teacher-counselor component which helped guidance and counseling personnel become more familiar with the world of work. The report indicates that most of the objectives were met. However, it was the opinion of the staff that project and district counseling services had to be unified to better meet the needs of the students. The document describes the tutorial assistance program and presents data collected during the project in the form of tables and graphs. (LJ)
