My name is Cassie Medina, and I am a member of the High School Success team. In that work, I specifically focus on dropout prevention, and am excited to explore this topic with you at the 2018 Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Summer Institute!

Just under 7,000 students dropped out of school in Oregon during the 2016-2017 school year. Addressing this crisis, and in order to have a significant impact on our graduation rate as a state, we must consider reengagement at the school level. Hard questions must be asked, and systems must be examined to ensure they are set up to support students, to reengage youth, and to set all on a path toward a successful future.

Feel free to introduce yourself to the group and post any questions and/or wonderings that you may have about this session!
