Unfortunately, students who decide to leave high school without the skills and credentials they need to become successful, productive members of society typically face many struggles in the future as a result of leaving school prematurely. All personnel in the Victoria ISD work together to discourage and prevent high school students from dropping out. Should you notice one or more of the following warning signs in a student, please get involved!
If, after various interventions have been implemented, the student continues to experience difficulty, VISD school personnel will meet with the student to discuss his/her educational needs and how to best address those needs so that graduation is possible!
