What if a student comes into your classroom and they show signs right from the start that they are going to be problem students how would you handle that

How does stress affect the retention process? does the student or the instructor directly affect the process

Mentoring students.

Does mentoring our students is a good way to improve retention?

Identifying the student

AT first day I have the students tell me what their weakness is . We can all say what we are great at but everyone has trouble saying their weakness. This way, you can identify everything all at once.

Keeping Students

One thing that I have noticed that I do regularly is to ask students for their input on different places to visit. By doing this volunteering and such my students feel a part of the community. However, I feel that keeping students has a lot to do with keeping instructors as well and I find that those that care deeply are the most hurt.

ATTENDANCE

IF YOU EXPLAIN DURING ORIENTATION WHAT THE SCHOOLS EXPECTATIONS ARE OF THEM AND CREATE A TEAM APPROACH. IF YOU WANT AN EDUCATION, WE ARE HERE AS A TEAM TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR GOALS. YOU HAVE TO UTILIZE ALL DEPARTMENTS AND MEET THE REQUIREMENTS TO GET THEM TO THEIR EXTERNSHIPS, GRADUATION, JOB SEARCH AND HIRED IN THEIR FIELD. THE STUDENT NEEDS TO REALIZE EACH SHORT TERM GOAL THAT IS ACCOMPLISHED WILL LEAD THEM TO THEIR GOAL.IN REALITY, THEY MUST BUY INTO THE PROGRAM, THE SCHOOL AND THEIR GOALS.

Awards

At our graduation programs awards are given to a great number of students. It is amazing to see the smiles on thev faces of students many of which have probably never been recognized before. Communication hits the non-graduating bstudents quickly and they want to know how theycan achieve awards as well.

So then what is the middle ground, and how many times do you change your plan of action?

Team analysis of student attrition

Discussing each student who "drops out" during a periodic interdepartmental school meeting will help formulate an action plan that may prevent some future attrition. Often students "disappear" and other than the department directly involved, other departments don't really know why. I almost liken this to the post mortem conference at hospitals after they lose a patient. If everyone is to be involved in keeping students in school, everyone needs to be aware of what factors are involved in their decision to leave. Has anyone had any experience doing this?
