TUCSON - Tucson Unified School District's "Steps to Success" encourages students who dropped out to come back to school and complete their diplomas.
On Friday, volunteers from TUSD, the City of Tucson's Mayor's office and other partner organizations will go door-to-door, to encourage students who have dropped out of school to return and earn their diplomas.
Steps to Success will focus on 50 students who passed their AIMS tests and are within a few credits of earning their diplomas but may not be planning to return to school.
The program will also reach out to more than 450 students who have dropped out of school in recent years and may be harder to locate.
TUSD has set up a Success Center on the Catalina Magnet High School campus, for students who wish to get information and assistance in completing their high school education. The hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to Noon on Saturdays.
Superintendent H.T. Sanchez and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will be among the 46 pairs of volunteers who will visit homes between 8 a.m and Noon on Friday.
