Every year schools strive to reduce and prevent student dropout. This literature review will provide practitioners both a comprehensive overview of risk and protective factors affecting dropout and a review of prevention and intervention programs, using the three-tier public health model as a guide. Participants will learn about specific evidence-based programs and related strategies that they can advocate for in their schools.
