Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: Strategies for Preparing At-Risk Youth for Postsecondary Success. OMB Control Number: Pending. Type of Review: New. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 132. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 116. Abstract: Educators are increasingly concerned about poor high school graduation rates, especially among atrisk youth. Many of the programs adopted by districts and schools to decrease the dropout rate traditionally set the goal of completing high school. Programs that meet the dual goals of supporting at-risk youth to graduate from high school and then enroll in and succeed in postsecondary education are not commonly found in most school districts and few studies of dropout prevention programs have a postsecondary focus. This study aims to fill a gap by conducting qualitative case studies of up to 15 sites with a focus on preventing students from dropping out and preparing them for postsecondary education or training. This study will systematically analyze qualitative data across multiple respondents to generate portraits of programs and strategies that the sites use, lessons based on implementation successes and challenges, and evidence suggesting their effectiveness in improving the outcomes of interest. To complete the study, the U.S. Department of Education is requesting OMB approval of two related qualitative data collection activities: (1) A phone screen with local program managers to determine the final sample of case studies and (2) up to 15 site visits to a purposive case study sample. Although the lessons are not generalizable to a larger population because the sample is purposive and small, the case studies will provide rich contextual information to help practitioners assess the applicability of the lessons in their own schools or districts.
