Dropout Prevention

Aurora Public Schools offers a variety of innovative programs to keep students engaged in education and to re-engage those students who have dropped out so they can earn their high school diplomas and be prepared for colleges and careers.

Rebound Ombudsman Program

The Rebound Ombudsman Program, which was created in September 2008 to help at-risk students, represents a partnership involving Aurora Public Schools, the Colorado Coalition of Faith, Community College of Aurora, Colorado Youth for a Change, and Ombudsman Educational Services.

In addition to academics, the program provides support to students through behavior intervention, social skills training and life management skills. Students also have the opportunity to enroll in the Community College of Aurora to earn college credits while they complete their high school courses.

Rebound Ombudsman provides personalized instruction in a technology-rich environment that enables students to progress at their own pace. A condensed school day which is shorter than a traditional day accommodates students’ family and work responsibilities.

Futures Academy

Futures Academy serves students ages 17 to 21, who have too few credits to receive a traditional high school diploma but are still interested in furthering their education and pursuing a post-secondary degree.

Through a partnership with Colorado Youth for a Change and Aurora Public Schools, students are provided the resources, guidance, and targeted academic instruction that will allow them to leave Futures Academy with an associate degree, a Pickens Technical Certificate, a GED, or a combination of the three.
