Participants: “Finding that Balance”: Choosing between Culture, Content, and College Readiness at One International High School Chandler Patton Miranda, New York University In the U.S., approximately one out of two students who enter high school with this profile will never graduate. Yet, Fine et al. (2005) found that the International High Schools have extraordinarily high graduation rates and extraordinarily low drop-out rates, even when compared to native English speaking students. The purpose of this interpretive case study is to explore what assumptions about student learning underpin one IHS's approach to assessment.  Revitalizing the College Search Phase: An Examination of Student and School Level Effects Jesse Wood, University of Tennessee at Knoxville; Lee D. Flood, University of Tennessee at Knoxville; Alex Nathan Oldham, University of Tennessee at Knoxville This quantitative study examined the impact of student college search and school practices that support search on postsecondary enrollment. With the use of college choice theory, analysis from a logistic regression revealed that school counselors and student initiated search practices positively impacted postsecondary enrollment for secondary students, while school organized campus visits reduced the probability of enrollment. The results from this study have implications for better school practices that increase college access for all students. Persisting Versus Dropping Out: 5th Year Seniors Gregory White, Michigan State University This research explores why high school seniors, who do not graduate on time, persist in an effort to obtain a high school diploma instead of dropping out or seeking a GED, which is the more traditional trajectory. Structured interviews tease out underlying reasons for this divergence, interrogating personal and structural domains, while a nationally representative data set exposes this phenomenon on a national level. Over Aged, Under Credited, And College Ready? Nakia M Gray, New York University Transfer high schools are charged with the task of preparing over aged, under credited students for graduation and college. This purpose of this qualitative case study is to offer a perspective into how a transfer school leader in conjunction with community partnerships utilizes partnerships and pre-college transition programs to redefine college readiness and student success. Facilitator: Martha N. Ovando, University of Texas - Austin
