Jake is a high school junior at a large public high school located in a suburban area.  He has struggled academically since his parents’ divorce and has failed to earn two credits necessary for graduating with his class.  His attendance is sporadic and his learning and work completion are directly impacted by his frequent absences from school.  You have become concerned about Jake’s future and are planning a parent/student/teacher conference.  Outline your concerns for Jake if he chooses not to complete high school. In addition, list some things the school can do to help reduce the dropout rate.

Dropping out of high school can put Jake at considerable risk, as dropouts condemn themselves to low-level occupations, unemployment, and poverty.  The factors that appear to be impacting Jake’s success include academic failure and poor attendance.  The school could provide Jake with individual attention, a high status role and assistance with academic deficits and missing credit recovery.
