Title:Early intervention program and college partnerships
Organization:Eric Clearinghouse on Higher Education
Short Description:Early intervention programs provide a significant opportunity for high risk students to secure the available resources, funding, educational background, and guidance to enter postsecondary education. Beginning as early as kindergarten and throughout high school, encouraging students to enter college and receive a baccalaureate degree gives high risk students the much needed support and extra attention they need.
Annotation:Early intervention programs provide a significant opportunity for high risk students to secure the available resources, funding, educational background, and guidance to enter postsecondary education. Beginning as early as kindergarten and throughout high school, encouraging students to enter college and receive a baccalaureate degree gives high risk students the much needed support and extra attention they need. Many high risk students need this help to attend and graduate from college. Using early intervention strategies eliminates the boundaries between schools and colleges, discourages student dropout, and gives students hope to pursue entrance into college. Active participation by school counselors, teachers, school and college administrators, college student support staff, and faculty generates involvement between schools and colleges and also eases the transition from one institution to another.
