SITUATION APPRAISAL

You have begun a major transition with the intent of improving the Trenton, NJ by minimizing crime rate over the next few years. During a recent article, you stated, “We want to make sure we are in front of it with some great programming, intervention and, recreational activities as well that will help stem some of the violent crime that has been plaguing the city”.

The transition that you seek will require reducing the student dropout rate which for some Trenton schools is as high as twenty-six percent. Students who dropout of school experience little success in the classroom. In many schools with a diverse student population such as Trenton, the lack of classroom success is directly correlated to racial tensions between the teacher and students. Eliminating classroom racism will reduce the student dropout rate for Trenton Public Schools.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of this consulting assistance include, but are not limited to:

  • Reduce the need for police intervention in schools
  • Reducing the student dropout rate
  • Increase student graduation rate
  • Increase student achievement
  • Using this opportunity to improve community relations
  • Preventing problems before the more expensive and sometimes embarrassing contingent actions are taken.

VALUE TO TRENTON CITY

The value of this project is multifold, including:

  • Decreased fire and police involvement with school challenges
  • Decreased societal challenges associated with students who dropout of school
  • Avoiding the negative media associated with crime
  • Improved community relations
  • Increased student education in the eyes of the Trenton City community.

TIMING
