                                 MTG RE: DROP BACK IN MINUTES

                                 Special Meeting/Workshop

                                     1. Convene: 2:35 p.m.
                                     2. Public Comments: Jan Porter
                                     3. Consider Approval of the Contract with Alternatives
                                        Unlimited for the Drop Back In Program
                                        Motions:

                                          I recommend that the School Board          - PASS
                                          approve the contract with Alternatives
                                          Unlimited to set up the Drop Back In
                                          (DBI) Program in Palm Beach County.
                                          Minutes: Drop Back In (DBI) is a dropout
                                          retrieval program where students who
                                          already dropped out of school are given
an opportunity to return and attend a
program leading to graduation. The DBI
Program will be housed in leased space in
four to six sites within Palm Beach
County. Students who are 16-21 years
old and have dropped out of our district’s
high schools are eligible to attend. The
DBI Program recruits students in the
community and at work places employing
students without a diploma. The DBI
Program offers flexible schedules, online
and small group teacher directed classes
with certified teachers. The DBI Program
is presently in 7 states, including Florida.
Their programs are in Duvall and Broward
Counties in Florida. The DBI Program
bears the entire expense of setting up
their sites. They pay teachers,
administrators, online subscription costs
and for materials. As students enroll, the
district obtains FTE for each student. The
district gives the DBI Program 9/10th of
the FTE for each student enrolled and
1/10th is kept for oversight costs to the
district and to provide textbooks. This is
the only cost to the district other than the
time of district employees in the
Department of Supplemental Educational
Services to oversight the program.
Students who meet all requirements of a
diploma in the state of Florida, including
passing FCAT, receive a high school
diploma in a ceremony through the DBI
Program. The DBI Program is limited to
48 students in each session at each site
(96 per site) or a total of 396 students
during semester one. The program plan is
to expand with the approval of the School
District to two additional sites. The
Contract with Alternatives Unlimited to
set up the Drop Back In Program will be
effective immediately upon approval of
the School Board.
