Six ways in which learners can prevent dropping out or failing at college or university are as follows:
1. Engage and Partner with Parents- Parent involvement declines as students get older and become more independent. [ But although the role of parents changes in secondary school, their ongoing engagement from regular communication with school staff to familiarity with their child's schedule, courses, remains central to students' success.
2. Cultivate Relationships
The most effective advisories meet regularly, stay together for several years, and involve staff development that helps teachers support the academic, social, and emotional needs of their students.
3. Pay Attention to Warning Signs
-get a deeper understanding of which students were most likely to drop out, and identify the early-warning signs that should alert teachers, school staff, and parents to the need for interventions.
4. Make Learning Relevant
Boredom and disengagement are two key reasons students stop attending class and wind up dropping out of school.
5. Raise the Academic Bar
Increased rigor doesn't have to mean increased dropout rates. Higher expectations and more challenging curriculum, coupled with the support students need to be successful, have proven to be an effective strategy not only for increasing graduation rates, but also for preparing students to graduate from high school with options.
6. Develop a Community Plan
First is knowledge - understanding the scope of the problem as well as current programs, practices, and resources targeted at addressing it. Second is strategy - development of"dropout prevention, intervention, and recovery plan" that focuses community resources.
