The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends high school completion programs for students at risk of not finishing high school. Programs that are effective for increasing the likelihood that students get a high school diploma or a GED (general education development) diploma include vocational training, alternative schools, social-emotional skills training, mentoring and counseling, supplemental academic services, attendance monitoring, and case management.
