Faddis, Constance R.
This guidebook is part of a series of program materials for a school-based intervention process to help at-risk students stay in school.

The following steps are described: perform a needs assessment, access the needed resources, form a dropout prevention task force, adopt or develop a program model, prepare a written agreement, allocate staff and resources, reorganize school structures, manage the program budget, provide inservice, encourage flexibility and creativity, evaluate the program, and review evaluation findings with the task force.
