A Nationally Recognized Dropout Prevention Program: Cynthia Franklin, Ph.D.
Thursday, February 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Cynthia Franklin, Ph.D. helped develop a solution-focused, dropout prevention program in Gonzalo Garza Independence High School in Austin, Texas in 2002. The program reduces dropout rates and helps students graduate and attend college. Garza High School’s continuous success has resulted in multiple recognitions, including the Texas Education Agency model school program and The United States Department of Education ranking as a top five dropout prevention program.
Join us for a community talk on Garza High School’s dropout prevention program and what it looks like for students, teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals and other school personnel.
1.5 CEs will be provided for educators, social workers, and counselors (LPCs).
