Prevention of Dropouts. Three-Year Plan.
Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, OH.; Cincinnati Public Schools, OH.
Cincinnati (Ohio) has established a collaborative effort between the private sector, the Cincinnati Public Schools, and public elected officials for the purpose of reducing dropouts and reducing youth unemployment. Started in 1986, the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative (CYC) immediately began to study relevant data from the schools, defined at-risk students, and decided on new data collection needs. Next, they studied the indicators that often identified potential dropouts, the policies and procedures that were in effect regarding these students, and the existing resources that are available. A detailed list of intervention strategies and approaches is discussed, for example, a higher education information center, a jobs network, a dropout recovery program, a leadership development training for teachers and administrators, and tutoring. Funding sources and a list of expenditures were included. The goals of the collaborative were defined as establishing a director to manage the CYC and the initiation of community involvement and education activities. Appendices are available upon request.
