This resource was produced in response to a request: "A state department of education would like information on how states are educating overage students who may be at least two grades behind and are at risk of dropping out of high school. In particular, some districts want to enroll students with their age group, in an alternative setting, or in a vocational program." To obtain information for this request, the Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) contacted the National High School Center (NHSC), SERVE, and SDEs for states throughout the United States. SECC reviewed information provided by the respondents and used various Web search engines to locate additional information on the topic.
