On the ‘Frontline’ of Dropout Prevention

2012 September 26
by HISD Communications

If you haven’t had a chance to watch the PBS Frontline episode “Dropout Nation” featuring dropout prevention efforts at Sharpstown High School, I encourage you to watch it in its entirety here.

HISD’s efforts to get dropouts back in class and keep at-risk students from leaving school in the first place was the focus of the special report that aired on Tuesday night (Sept. 25).

It was great to open our doors and share those efforts with the nation. Through the powerful efforts of our teachers, principals, and administrators, we can continue to work to keep kids in school and see them walk across the stage with diplomas in hand.
