Meeting a crucial need, this book presents effective prevention and intervention methods that can help all students stay--and succeed--in school. The authors emphasize that dropout is a process, not an event. They provide tools for identifying dropout risk (including academic, behavior, and attendance problems) and strategies for problem solving and data-based decision making at the elementary and secondary levels. Illustrative case examples and reproducible checklists and tools enhance this user-friendly resource. The print book has a large-size format with lay-flat binding to facilitate photocopying. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

"One of the few resources on dropout prevention that thoroughly examines how to organize evidence-based practices within a multi-tiered system of support. This is a superb resource that integrates depth of scholarship with practical application. The book focuses on implementing academic interventions and social/behavioral supports to create effective school environments that increase student engagement. The authors have made a major contribution to addressing a complex and persistent challenge."--A. James Artesani, EdD, College of Education and Human Development, University of Maine
"Provides a well-researched and holistic approach. The authors clearly understand both the complexity of this issue and how to apply strategies that have been proven to be successful. All preservice teachers would be fortunate to take a course that incorporates this text, and master's and doctoral students in education leadership would add much to their knowledge and expertise. This is also a much-needed professional development resource for those already working in schools. It addresses the full range of dropout prevention needs at all levels and what can be done about them."--Marty Duckenfield, former Public Information Director, National Dropout Prevention Center, Clemson University
