NEW PROGRAM TARGETS HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS TO RETURN, PURSUE DEGREES
Administrators with the Forsyth Academy of Continuing Education have recruited 17 students to come back to school since starting last month. All were slated to graduate in either 2012 or 2013 but dropped out before earning their diplomas. Through FACE, the students are allowed to re-enroll in their home school and work with counselors to formulate an individualized academic plan designed to help them recover credits and graduate on time. That plan looks a little different for each student, said Kay Landry, program specialist for dropout prevention, intervention and recovery.
