BRYAN In an all-out ‘blitz’ to find students who didn’t return to school, or who came to school briefly this year and then dropped out, dozens of administrators from Bryan ISD and involved community partners will fan out Sept. 20 for the Bryan ISD Community Dropout Prevention Blitz.
The message for students is a simple one: “We want you back.”
Blitz teams will be loaded with information for students, including a snapshot of how the student has progressed through high school and information about alternatives the district offers to catch kids up and launch them successfully to the next phase of life. The Blitz directly furthers Bryan ISD’s mission to provide positive educational experiences that ensure high school graduation and post-secondary success.
Students disenchanted with the traditional high school model or facing other life challenges may not yet be aware of the numerous alternatives offered in Bryan ISD. What’s more, they may not be aware of the increase in earning potential they can enjoy for life, just by achieving their high school credential. Blitz organizers hope to contact about 100 students to educate them about their options and give them an encouraging message about their future.
More than a dozen Blitz teams, assembled from the district’s leadership and community groups, will spread out along pre-planned routes Friday, hoping to make contact with as many students and families as possible.
