Gunn, Thelma M.; Chorney, David W.; Poulsen, John C.
Journal of At-Risk Issues, v15 n1 p17-24 2009
Since 1999, the Alberta Initiative for School Improvement (AISI) has provided funding to provincial school authorities for projects designed to improve student learning and performance. Conducted in three-year cycles, this unique approach has successfully helped to initiate approximately 1,600 grassroots projects led by school districts, teachers, parents, and students across the province. The following comprehensive review examines 18 selected projects selected by Alberta Education (Cycle 2, 2003-2006) as focusing upon high school completion. Based on the project report findings, a number of successful strategies and programs were implemented that targeted students at risk of non-completion. The following discussion will identify the major foci, themes, and strategies arising from those projects. (Contains 4 tables.)
