SFPS hires firm to bring dropouts back

SANTA FE (KRQE) – Santa Fe Public Schools is hiring some outside help to boost low graduation rates.

They want to get students who dropped out back in the classroom.

The New Mexican reports a private, Florida-based firm will help recruit dropouts for a program that will allow returning students to take online classes.

The district will use state funds for the program and plans to start it next semester.

According to the district, every student enrolled in school generates $6,700 in funding.
