This report features an introduction that provides background information on the dropout problem, TSDPRP, the evaluation plan, and a summary of findings from the first year of the evaluation. Following this is a presentation of program objectives, evaluation objectives, data collection methods, data analyses, and findings as they relate to each TSDPRP task. To conclude, the report presents key findings and recommendations, organized by evaluation question.
