Abstract: The Greensboro "Cities in Schools" project, one of several federally funded interventions programs across the nation targeted toward elementary and secondary students who are "at risk" of dropping out of school, was critically evaluated. Similar to programs in other cities and states, the Greensboro Cities in Schools program was intended to be comprehensive in the sense that it attempted to address all of the factors (academic, social, family, and vocational) in a student's life that presumably affect school attendance. The ultimate success of such programs must be judged by whether participating students actually remain in school and graduate in greater proportions than they otherwise would have. The current investigation examined the effects of the intervention upon factors known to be related to dropping out of school.
