6 Z the of dropout prevention at WPHS and WPHS has a WV Dropout Prevention Team supported by NDPC-SD (National Dropout Prevention Center- Students with Disabilities) working to establish a data-driven early warning and response system in our school. Students signal frustration and disengagement from school in their attendance, behavior, and course performance. Studies show that we can identify up to half of future dropouts as early as the sixth grade just by looking at these variables. Our goal is for focused coordination and communication that will ease students’ transitions and help get the right supports to the right students at the right time before they disengage and give up on school.
