Follow-Up of No-Shows: Special Report: School Board of Sarasota County.
The document reports on the activities undertaken by occupational specialists for junior and senior high schools of Sarasota County, Florida, in the identification and placement of non-returning students or no-shows. The identification of actual and potential no-shows involves several processes and those who request assistance are presented with alternative educational programs, job placement assistance, and resources from community service organizations. In 1975, 204 actual no-shows were identified of which 148 requested assistance and were given information or resources (19), returned to their educational programs (33), changed to alternate programs (77), placed in jobs (14), and assisted by community service agencies (5). Full-time education enrollments contributed to the funding of the school as a result of the additional enrollment by returning no-show students. Appended materials include a no-show report form and a summary of assistance to no-shows by occupational specialists during September-October 1975. (EC)
