Piloting a Searchable Database of Dropout Prevention Programs in Nine Low-Income Urban School Districts in the Northeast and Islands Region

By Anthony Petrosino, Athi Myint-U, Lydia O’Donnell, Ann Stueve


While there is evidence that some dropout prevention programs have positive effects, the degree to which districts in the region are using evidence-based programs has not been documented. This report details a pilot project to generate and share knowledge by building a searchable database of dropout prevention programs and policies.

Information about the regional educational laboratory (REL) system and other REL publications can be found at the National Regional Educational Laboratory Program website.
