School has started. Can you feel it?
Backpacks are full again and the pitter-patter of feet throughout school hallways has been a welcomed sound to APS administrators. However, the reality is that there are still some Aurora students who are not in school. Their absence hinders their growth, and APS wants every student to succeed.
APS and Colorado Youth for a Change recently teamed up to launch Drop In Aurora, a new program aimed at getting dropouts back into school to finish their secondary education. Interested students or influencers (their family, friends, clergy, etc.) can text "dropin1" to 99000. The individual will receive a note of encouragement and a website link to an interactive experience including the appropriate resources needed for a successful return to school.
If you or someone you know has dropped out and wants more information on how to reenroll, call 303-223-2447, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit dropinaurora.com.
