Dropout Recovery Specialist

The Dropout Recovery Specialist will work as part of a team dedicated to contacting recent high school dropouts and reenrolling them in the Boston Public Schools (BPS).  The team works at the BPS Re-Engagement Center to ensure appropriate placement for these returning students, and also supports the placement of at-risk high school students into alternative education placements.  The team maintains contact with returning students at their new schools.  If reenrollment in the BPS is not a viable option, the team strives to connect the dropout with other public or non-profit support systems, such as HiSET programs and Boston’s One Stop Career Centers.  

This work is an action research project and is part of Boston’s larger dropout prevention and recovery effort, so the work is of interest to other stakeholders.  Therefore, the team develops quantitative and qualitative reports on the evolving dropout recovery initiative for presentation to the Youth Transitions Task Force and the PIC Board of Directors as well as the BPS Superintendent and his team, the Boston School Committee, and other concerned audiences.
