Target 2000 Dropout Prevention and Retrieval Projects: Program Descriptions.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
The Target 2000 legislation enacted by the South Carolina General Assembly in 1989 mandates halving the state's dropout rate by the year 2000. The statute requires that the State Board of Education, assisted by a select committee, devise and pilot-test dropout prevention programs during school years 1989-90, 1990-91, and 1991-92. In September 1989, the select committee and the State Board of Education approved administrative guidelines for a competitive grant program to implement this statute, and funding authorizations followed in 1990. This publication describes each project and provides names and telephone numbers of contact persons. Also included is a matrix showing the intervention and prevention strategies used by each project. Projects range from computer-assisted learning programs to school-within-school and parental involvement initiatives. Projects are grouped according to district, secondary, middle, or elementary school emphasis. (MLH)
