A new program in Green Bay, Wis., schools is aimed at helping motivate students who are at risk of dropping out to stay in school and graduate. The College, Career and Community Readiness Pathways program will be held during the regular school day and will replace the existing Forward Bound program, which is held in the evening. "We found that it was harder for them to transition back into traditional school after attending Forward Bound at night," said Barb Dorff, executive director of learning and student services. "They were more likely to lose their connection to school."
