ENACT School Partnerships in Full Swing

ENACT is excited to announce that we have begun programming through our comprehensive long-term Dropout Prevention Program for the eighth year in a row. We are especially excited to bring our program to a brand new partner, thanks to additional support from the City Council. Dropout Prevention Programs are well underway in 3 schools for the 2014-2015 school year including:

  • Academy for Personal Leadership & Excellence/M.S. 363, Bronx
  • Khalil Gibran International Academy, Brooklyn
  • The Urban Assembly Institute for New Technologies, Harlem

Since 2007, ENACT has served between three and five schools each year with a comprehensive program that combines the ENACT drama-based method for a targeted cohort of students with full-time on-site staff, trained to intervene in the most serious circumstances. These staff members  are embedded into the school community by participating on leadership and behavior intervention teams at each site, providing professional development to classroom teachers, and reaching out to parents regularly.

Many thanks to the NYC Council for funding these programs through its Dropout Prevention and Intervention Initiative and to the NYC Department of Education for its ongoing partnership.
