Stay In--You Win: Module One. Project Overview.
The Stay In--You Win project of Alberta, Canada is designed to harness the resources of the school, community, and parents in support of the student staying in school and completing a high school diploma. It is an approach dependent upon partnerships and teamwork. It is an approach based on research findings from around the world, programs that have worked elsewhere, and resources available in Alberta. Because several Alberta high schools have already introduced comprehensive dropout prevention programs while others are just beginning, the project is designed in modules which make it easier to access the appropriate information for any stage of implementation. (This document presents Module One of the project which is designed to provide a minimal amount of information on the nature and extent of the dropout problem and to analyze the participants, educators, parents, and students. It is a review of the problems that will help school personnel to get started in planning their Stay In--You Win initiatives. Brief descriptions of each of the six modules are provided. Analysis of three significant audiences of dropout prevention programs (educators, parents, and students) is presented. A summary of factors that put students at risk is included. An extensive article is appended: "Effective Strategies for Dropout Prevention; Twelve Successful Strategies To Consider in a Comprehensive Dropout Prevention Program" (M. Duckenfield and others).
