5 NEW YORK STATE DROPOUT RATES A95D B/0/The_Class_of_2012_4Yr_Graduation_and_Dropout_Report.pdf

6 2009 Cohort (2013 graduates) dropout rate: 8.3% 2009 Cohort graduation rate for Geneva High School: 83.4% GENEVA HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT RATES

7 WHY STUDENTS ARE DROPPING OUT The number one reason students drop out is because classes are boring Classes are not relatable to real life 81% of surveyed high school dropouts said that if schools had provided opportunities for career readiness and real- life knowledge it would improve students’ chances of graduating.

8 WHO IS DROPPING OUT 88% were passing 62% had C’s and above 70% were confident they could have graduated

9 HYPOTHESIS Students drop out because they don’t see the connection between course work and the real world By implementing a local expert program, where experts from the community come into classrooms to share their knowledge or skills, the gap will be bridged Students don’t see connection between class and real life Bring in local experts Students see connection and are motivated to persist in school

10 JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT Initially reached out to other StriveTogether sites, but were told such a program didn’t exist and recommended we contact Junior Achievement Junior Achievement Mission Statement Junior Achievement has worked with 4.4 million students per year and has 202,524 classroom volunteers from a multitude of professions
