About Dropout Prevention and Recovery
The purpose of Dropout Prevention and Recovery as part of the Zip Code Project, is to collaborate with districts, schools and other sectors of the community in exploring ways to prevent students from dropping out of school by providing resources, opportunities and outreach that will ultimately help students stay in school and earn a high school diploma, indicating their readiness for college, career, and life.
In order to continue lowering Arizona’s dropout rate and increase the number of high school graduates equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century, we must first close the opportunity gap. All students must have equal and adequate access to educational opportunities and resources. To achieve this goal, we strive to ensure that Arizona’s communities, school districts, and individual schools provide each student with multiple pathways to success.
