Students entering their first year of high school face challenges associated with transitioning from middle school to high school. The purpose of this curriculum is to educate ninth grade students and their parents or caregivers on the benefits of making a commitment to stay in school and graduate. Ninth grade students need additional support from parents, teachers, and administrators to not fall behind and leave school due to risky behaviors, poor attendance, and low grades. This curriculum, Promoting Academic Achievement for Future Success: A Curriculum for At-Risk Students and Their Parents, includes one Facilitator’s Handbook to lead a set of three parent workshops, and a set of four student workshops. The curriculum also includes handouts for parents and student workshops. The curriculum provides guidelines for recruiting students and their parents, referral and consent forms, adult and student learning techniques, resource materials, and an evaluation form for both youth and parents.
