Effective Aspects of Reengagement and Recovery Programs in Southeastern Wisconsin High Schools
Litzau, Christopher; Rice, Nancy
Journal of At-Risk Issues, v20 n1 p36-43 2017
The number of students in the United States who did not complete high school decreased by 27% from 2008 to 2012 (Alliance for Excellent Education, America's Promise Alliance, Civic Enterprises, & The Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University, 2015). This is a positive trend. High schools can help students complete school and prepare for career and technical education (CTE) by incorporating (a) career academies, (b) dual enrollment, (c) paid employment/internships, (d) flexible scheduling, and (e) social services. The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of these proven characteristics in Reengagement and Recovery Programs in Southeastern Wisconsin. Twenty-seven of 85 survey responses were returned, for a response rate of 31.7%. It was found that a majority of programs provided flexible programs and support services, but were not focused on providing students career and occupational credentials. The study underscores the need for a stronger focus on CTE in high schools.
