Document Number: 7876Dropout Prevention - IES Practice Guide - A dropout prevention meta-analysis by the U.S. Education Departmentís What Works Clearinghouse makes six specific recommendations, each featuring the evidence behind it, advice on carrying them out, roadblocks to look out for and suggested roadblock approaches. These six recommendations fall into three categories: (1) diagnostic processes for identifying student-level and schoolwide dropout problems, (2) targeted interventions for at-risk middle and high school students, and (3) schoolwide reforms to enhance engagement for all students and prevent dropout more generally.
