Dropout Prevention

  • Building positive and meaningful relationships with students is a philosophy in Alief ISD. The district addresses the area of dropout prevention through early intervention, student engagement, and student recovery to promote this belief. Our goal is to offer multiple pathways to success by providing resources, opportunities, and outreach that will ultimately help students stay in school and earn a high school diploma.

    Addressing non-attendance at an early age provides each student with a greater chance of staying in school and graduating. Our district has these early intervention components in place:

    • Early childhood program
    • Communicating with parents on attendance
    • Conducting home visits
    • Providing interventions that encourage regular attendance and punctuality 

    Through student engagement, each student’s sense of belonging, safety, and involvement in school lead to academic achievement, regular school attendance, and graduation. Elements for promoting student engagement include:

    • Extra-curricular courses
    • Extra-curricular activities
    • Clubs/organizations
    • After School Program
    • 21st Century Workforce
    • Mentoring
