TEMPLATE FOR INDIVIDUAL STUDENT PROFILES
Purpose: This tool will help you identify the characteristics of dropout students in your community, enabling you to identify the factors that most affect your dropout population and tailor programs to address these factors. You may also want to construct similar tables for students who withdrawal for unknown destinations. Many time students who withdrawal for unknown destinations have actually dropped out of school.
Background: This tool will need to be adapted depending on the configuration of your district and school’s student information system or performance management system. If it is possible for your IT personnel to accomplish this, it will be helpful in developing further understanding of the characteristics of your dropouts.
