Aim to reduce dropouts

Published 09/12/2008, The Jamestown Sun

Sixty-five students out of Jamestown High School’s classes of 2007 and 2008 dropped out before graduating, said Bob Toso, superintendent of Jamestown Public Schools. The district’s graduation rate is about 80 percent, Toso said at a meeting attended by about 30 educators, social workers, counselors and government workers. That rate is about the same as other districts in the state and above the national average. The meeting was held to identify the drop-out issue and to find ways Jamestown can solve it.
