Transition Sixth (T-6) Review: An Effective Dropout Prevention Program, 1987-88 through 1990-91.
Blasik, Katherine; And Others
This report summarizes data for students participating in the Transition Sixth (T-6) Dropout Prevention program in Broward County Public Schools, Florida, from the 1987-88 to 1990-91 school years. The T-6 program uses an early intervention strategy designed to reduce the dropout rate by allowing selected over-age fourth graders to master skills required for fifth and sixth grade in one academic year. Performance indicators for the analysis described in this report included annual attendance, report card grades, suspension rates, frequency of promotion, IOWA test scores, measures of student attitudes, and frequency of parent visitation. Findings show that the T-6 program has a strong positive effect on participants, and that T-6 student performance improves over time, with T-6 participants outperforming control group students in a majority of areas. Ten tables of data and eight charts are included. (MM)
