        Succeeding in School

        The story of Omarina Cabrera, a young student who was helped by her school’s dropout intervention program, is featured in this video segment adapted from FRONTLINE: "Middle School Moment." When Omarina and her mother got evicted from their home, Omarina felt ashamed and began to frequently arrive late at school, causing her schoolwork to suffer. Luckily, her pattern of tardiness was flagged by her school’s team of counselors and teachers, who collect and review attendance statistics every week. Once the team knew about Omarina’s problems at home, they were able to develop the practical support she needed to complete middle school and prepare for a successful high school experience. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE collection.
