This project addresses high rates of dropout and absenteeism among at-risk Roma students in transitional grades (5th – 7th grade) in the all-Roma school in Haskovo by providing 1) tutorials and social skills training to reduce students’ behavioral problems and improve school attendance and grade completion, and 2) Family Group Conferences (FGCs). The current project will identify 60 Roma students (out of 250) in 5-7th grade who are at risk of dropping out and support and motivate them to stay in school, attend school regularly, and improve their grades.
