Title:The alternative pathways project: A framework for dropout reduction and recovery
Organization:The Alternative Pathways Project
Short Description:The Alternative Pathways Project (APP) was launched in early 2005 as part of an effort by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to increase graduation rates of minority and low-income students and ensure that all students are college-ready.
Annotation:The Alternative Pathways Project (APP) was launched in early 2005 as part of an effort by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to increase graduation rates of minority and low-income students and ensure that all students are college-ready. The project, which builds upon prior investments into the Alternative High School Initiative to expand the range of model schools for vulnerable youth, began by outlining critical elements for school districts developing educational pathways for struggling students and those who have dropped out of school. The model that emerged was then refined through field investigations of dropout reduction and recovery efforts in six cities across the nation: Boston, Chicago, Houston, New York, Portland (Oregon), and Sacramento.
