Stay In--You Win: Module Four. Dropout Prevention Programs That Work.
Module Four of the Alberta project "Stay In--You Win" is presented in this document. This module is designed to generate ideas for planning effective initiatives for schools. The stated objectives of this module are to provide a listing of dropout prevention programs in Alberta high schools; to encourage interpersonal networking among educators concerned with stay in school initiatives; to outline a variety of dropout prevention programs which can generate ideas for a school's Stay In--You Win initiatives; and to provide guidelines for the design of effective dropout prevention programs. Guidelines for effective education and remediation programs for youth are then presented. Eighteen dropout prevention projects in Alberta high schools are described. Sixty-nine dropout program project descriptions selected from the research literature are also presented. These are grouped into the categories of general programs; technology programs; programs specifically for girls; and business partnerships. Synopses for each of the four categories are included. Planning charts for the Stay In--You Win program are included. (ABL)
