Welcome to the Kansas DropINs Website

During the 2016-17 school year, 3,500 Kansas public school students dropped out of school.

That means that about 19 students dropout per school day!

Each high school dropout costs the nation approximately $292,000 in lost earnings, taxes and productivity over the course of his or her lifetime.

For the 3,500 dropouts that equals approximately $1 Billion over the course of their lifetimes.

Those dropouts are also more likely than their graduating peers to:

  • Be in prison
  • Get divorced
  • Live in poverty
  • Be unemployed
  • Have poor health
  • Utilize public assistance

We can no longer afford to treat this as a “school problem.” 

Not graduating costs everybody. 

Thank you for dropping IN to be a part of the solution!
