MassGrad Implementation Awards Case Study Drury High School, North Adams, Massachusetts

The MassGrad initiative from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) targeted the 133 schools from 76 districts that exceeded the statewide annual dropout rate of 2.9% during the 2008–09 school year. Twenty-eight of the MassGrad high schools in 17 districts received Implementation Awards through a competitive application process.

This case study highlights three dropout prevention programs at Drury High School in North Adams, a city of 14,000 residents in rural western Massachusetts. The case study’s main purpose is to support school personnel throughout Massachusetts who plan to conduct or are already conducting similar programs.
