10 On the Front Lines… Dropping out begins in Elementary/Middle School Schools need to develop early warning systems to help them identify students at risk of dropping out and to develop the mechanisms that trigger appropriate supports for these students. By 9th grade, dropout can be predicted with 85 percent accuracy. The key indicators are poor attendance, behavioral problems, and course failure. -John M. Bridgeland, John J.
