Time: 2:00–3:30 p.m. Eastern

Location: Webinar

Description: During this webinar, REL staff will disseminate information about evidence-based strategies to prevent dropout in secondary schools, with a focus on how practitioners can adopt and adapt the strategies. Participants will benefit from a presentation of four types of practices that can be adopted in schools and have been shown to prevent dropout. The practices are highlighted in the recently released What Works Clearinghouse practice guide on dropout prevention. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from practitioners in the Mid-Atlantic region to learn how they have implemented some of the strategies.

Audience: The primary audience for the event includes educators, counselors, coaches, and administrators in schools and local education agencies. The material might also be relevant for staff members in SEAs who are working on statewide efforts to reduce dropout or are interested in promoting evidence-based practices in LEAs within their states.
