The standard two phase Right Back on Track Mentoring Program runs 12 weeks. The first "intervention" phase runs for six weeks and features student location verification support and reporting and frequent mentor-initiated coaching sessions (usually three per week). After successful completion of this phase, the student moves to the second "step down" phase. In this six week period, the student returns his cellular communications device to the program and receives less frequent calls (at least weekly) from his or her coach.
The cost of the program is assessed as a per student basis for the two-phase twelve week program. Evaluate this cost in the context of preserved state attendance revenue for that young person of $5,000 to $10,000 and the lifetime of social advantages to be enjoyed by that graduate as a result of staying in school. Discounts are available for volume contracts. In most cases, schools realize a 3X return on their investment during the twelve week program itself.
