Recruitment/Outreach and Retention Resources

Retention Resources and Materials

GRASP (Guide for Retention and Student Persistence)

  • I show up every day of class and have only a handful of students.
  • The same students don't come back from one class to the next.
  • Some of my students will never get the GED.
  • I constantly have to stop what I'm doing to register new students.
  • I don't have time to plan for my class.
  • I advertise for my class, but still nobody comes.
  • I have to be a teacher, counselor, coach, and bodyguard for my students??!!

If you are able to check four or more of these statements, you are definitely a candidate for GRASP. You could benefit from attending the workshop to learn and share with others. You may be suffering from burnout and need some ideas to motivate yourself and your students. If you checked 1-3 items, you have become comfortable with your program and have obviously incorporated some innovative ideas into it. This workshop will help you enhance and refine your program and refine your program and increase your effectiveness.
